The MSc in Human Anatomy is a unique Master's programme created in response to the need to provide training in human gross anatomy for those who wish to improve their understanding of the structure and function of the human body, as well as those for whom this is a new area of study. The programme aims to provide expertise for those intending to use the knowledge gained in a learning and teaching environment.
The programme is the only one of its kind in the UK It combines whole body dissection with practicing techniques for the presentation of material for learning and teaching Provides an introduction to anatomical preservation and presentation techniques Full body dissection of Thiel embalmed (soft fix) cadavers Opportunity for self-directed original research
What does the course involve?
The programme is based around human gross anatomy, being supplemented by relevant embryology, neuroanatomy, clinical and surgical anatomy topics and anatomical techniques. Many components are examined entirely by course work through seminar presentations, essays, practical techniques and the development of web-based teaching tutorials and websites.
Both semesters 1 and 2 have a strong emphasis on gross anatomy through whole body dissection working in groups of no more than four per cadaver. Semester 1 also has modules in Embryology and Developmental Anatomy and in Anatomical techniques, while semester 2 has modules in Neuroanatomy and in Clinical and Surgical Anatomy Topics.
Semester 3 allows students to focus on an independent and novel research project in one of the following areas:
Thiel cadaveric anatomy The anatomy of a specific region of clinical/surgical interest Functional anatomy Anatomy and biomechanics Education
