Human Anatomy University of Edinburgh BioMedical Sciences

This programme has two main strands. One is the in-depth study of the anatomy of the human body. This will involve the dissection of a human body over two semesters. The other is the development of different methods for teaching human anatomy.Complementing these strands will be a lecture-based, embryology course providing you with an understanding of normal, human development and how normal development can go wrong, manifested in commonly observed congenital abnormalities.You will also study health and safety, and legal aspects of handling the body, and an introduction to the ethics of using bodies in medical education.Our programme aims to improve your theoretical and practical knowledge of human anatomy through an intensive on-campus dissection course, as well as the development and learning of theoretical and practical aspects of teaching anatomy at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Programme strands

This programme has two main strands.

Anatomy of the human body

One is the in-depth study of the anatomy of the human body. Anatomical knowledge will be learned to a level to teach undergraduate and postgraduate students and professions allied to medicine.

This strand will involve the dissection of a body in groups of three to five students over two semesters.

This part of the course is largely self-directed, with regular 'surgeries' when teaching staff are present to answer questions and help students with the dissections.

Anatomy pedagogy

The other is anatomy pedagogy, covering the theoretical and practical aspects of teaching anatomy to undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Next to theoretical lectures and workshops, the first semester will focus on observing the teaching of anatomy to medical undergraduate students.

The second semester will focus on being involved in preparing and carrying out teaching sessions to both small and large groups of students.

The learned theoretical material, the observations and practical experiences will be compiled in an end-of year teaching portfolio.

The experience that you will gain can be used towards an application as associate fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Additional programme content

Complementing these strands will be a lecture-based embryology course providing you with an understanding of normal human development and how normal development can go wrong, manifested in commonly observed congenital abnormalities.

To study at postgraduate level, you must normally hold a degree in an appropriate subject, with an excellent or very good classification (equivalent to first or upper second class honours in the UK).

We may also accept equivalent qualifications or work experience.

Specific entry requirements vary between degree programmes and you should confirm you have the necessary qualifications before applying.

You will find the minimum academic entry requirements and more details on your chosen programme in our website.
