Human Anatomy and Education

Understanding human anatomy is integral to a wide range of clinical and scientific disciplines including medicine, dentistry, archaeology, forensic science and bioengineering. A reduction in the number of universities nationally and internationally offering training in human anatomy has led to a shortfall in those qualified to work in the fields associated with the discipline. This course offers the opportunity not only to develop an in-depth understanding of anatomy through cadaveric dissection but also extensive training to become an accredited anatomy teacher.

Assessment methods

Teaching is student-focused and research-led. We encourage you to take responsibility for your own professional development, learning to analyse your own subject knowledge, reflect on teaching and consider how to make improvements. Much of the course is taught through small-group tutorials, one-to-one supervision and peer observation. We regularly provide you with formative and summative feedback to promote self-reflection and progression through the course. Assessment is a combination of written project work, teaching observations by staff and practical examinations.
