Professional Anatomy Courses

In addition to our commitment to the undergraduate and postgraduate curricula, Anatomy@Edinburgh also hosts a range of specialist, professional anatomy courses in collaboration with colleagues at the Edinburgh Teaching Hospitals and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.

These courses utilize a combination of embalmed and fresh frozen cadaveric specimens to deliver high quality teaching and training for practicing clinicians and surgeons across a range of specialties.
