This Medical Visualisation and Human Anatomy programme is the first taught Masters programme in medical visualisation in the UK. Offered jointly by the University of Glasgow and the Glasgow School of Art, it combines actual cadaveric dissection with 3D digital reconstruction, interaction and visualisation.

About

Why this programme
  • You will examine human anatomy and reconstruct it in a real-time 3D environment for use in education, simulation, and training.
  • You will have access to a wide range of digital interaction technologies including virtual and augmented reality, stereographic 3D and haptic devices.
  • You will also have access to the Laboratory of Human Anatomy at The University of Glasgow, one of the largest in Europe.
  • The Medical Visualisation and Human Anatomy programme  at the University of Glasgow has excellent industry connections through research and commercial projects. You will benefit from guest lectures by practitioners, researchers and experts from industry.
Career prospects

Career opportunities exist within the commercial healthcare device manufacturer, public and private healthcare sectors, as well as in academic medical visualisation research and development. Students will be able to gain 3D visualisation skills specific to applications in the medical, biomedical, anatomy, or health domains and will be involved in the design and development of related visualisations and/or applications through digital technology, eg visualising current life science research, creating patient information applications or training applications for medical practitioners, diagnostic and clinical applications, medical visualisation and simulation.
