Human Anatomy

There are 2 main strands to the programme, 1 being the in-depth study of the anatomy of the human body and all that this entails. The other is the development of different teaching methods for the teaching of human anatomy. Complementing these strands will be a lecture-based, embryology course providing students with an understanding of normal, human development and how normal development can go wrong, manifested in commonly observed congenital abnormalities. Students also study health and safety, and legal aspects of handling the body, and an introduction to the ethics of using bodies in medical education.
