Course Content

What you will study

Both semesters 1 and 2 have a strong emphasis on gross anatomy through whole body dissection, working in groups of no more than four per cadaver. Semester 1 also has modules in Embryology and Developmental Anatomy and a Skills module, while semester 2 has modules in Neuroanatomy and in Clinical and Surgical Anatomy Topics.

Semester 3 allows students to focus on an independent and novel research project, either practical or literature based, in one of the following areas:

  • Thiel cadaveric anatomy
  • The anatomy of a specific region of clinical/surgical interest
  • Functional anatomy
  • Anatomy and biomechanics
  • Education

The research project is normally carried out at the University of Dundee, but there may be opportunities to complete this at your home institution under certain circumstances.

How you will be assessed

The course is assessed through a variety of formative and summative assessments. Coursework includes practical ‘spot’ tests, essays, practical workbooks and seminar presentations, while examinations at the end of each semester may include multiple choice questions, extended matching questions, short answer questions, essays and practical spot tests. The research project requires production of a dissertation.
