Course content

Acquire advanced anatomical knowledge and develop your skills as an anatomy educator and researcher. You will acquire the same knowledge and skills as students studying the MSc in Clinical Anatomy, and in addition, a comprehensive professional education that focuses on developing teachers and researchers of anatomy. You will be trained in pedagogical techniques that will allow you to teach anatomy to students and healthcare professionals.

In this course, you will apply topographical, biomechanical, developmental and radiological perspectives to help you understand how the experience of handling cadaveric material translates to the anatomy of the living person.

You will learn to critically appraise and reflectively apply advanced anatomical acumen to inform clinical decision making. The programme will develop your knowledge and skills to undertake and deliver high quality research in clinical anatomy and related disciplines.

The course has a flexible structure, so you can tailor the programme to suit your individual interests and goals. You can choose from a number of exciting elective modules, which are taken in conjunction with the core modules. You can choose to study full time over one year, or part-time over two or three years.

This programme is an ideal option for medical students wishing to intercalate. It will hone and develop your analytical and research skills, as well as your practical skills using state-of-the-art equipment, which will enhance your performance on your undergraduate programme.

The course is delivered primarily on the University of Hull campus, but you may need to travel to the University of York for some of the elective modules.

You will be registered at the University of Hull, and you will have access to facilities and support at both our parent universities – Hull and York. All of our degrees are awarded by both the University of Hull and University of York.
