This programme has two main strands. One is the in-depth study of the anatomy of the human body. This will involve the dissection of a human body over two semesters. The other is the development of different methods for teaching human anatomy.
Complementing these strands will be a lecture-based, embryology course providing you with an understanding of normal, human development and how normal development can go wrong, manifested in commonly observed congenital abnormalities.
You will also study health and safety, and legal aspects of handling the body, and an introduction to the ethics of using bodies in medical education.
The teaching component of the programme will introduce students to the various methods used in teaching anatomy, and their effectiveness. This will involve preparing and carrying out a teaching session to both small and large groups of students.
Teaching is by lectures, seminars and tutorials. The dissection component of the course will be largely self-directed but with regular lectures to complement the practical work.
There will be an opportunity to put into practice what is being learned in the teaching module by teaching students on the medical degree course. There will also be guest lectures by experts in their specific field to complement the lecture course.
You have the option to finish after the second semester and graduate with a Diploma in Human Anatomy. Alternatively, to gain your masters, you need to complete a project that can be either library-based or practical- or laboratory-based.
