This MSc in Clinical Anatomy aims to provide students with a greater understanding of advanced human anatomy including appropriate radiological anatomy, microscopic anatomy and embryology.
The modules presented emphasise clinically and surgically relevant anatomy, although they are not designed exclusively for clinicians, and applications are invited from any students who have studied cadaveric anatomy within their first degree.
We have also launched a blended learning approach to achieving a PgCert or PgDip in Clinical Anatomy for working doctors. This involves online learning plus a two-day residential course.
