It forms the basis of studies in physiology, biochemistry and related biomedical sciences. Sub-disciplines of anatomy include: developmental biology (embryology), neuroanatomy, osteology (bones) and cell biology.
A major feature of the Anatomical Sciences (Hons) programme from University of Dundee is the emphasis on hands-on practical human anatomy. We are continuously striving to improve our teaching and have been active in developing teaching software to help deliver both lecture and practical material.There are regular meetings of staff-student liaison committees. While this provides a forum for formal contact, there is also opportunity for informal contact between you and academic staff, whom you will find friendly and approachable.
We use a variety of teaching methods, with lectures and practicals forming the core. In addition, we use workshops, tutorials, computer-aided learning, and field excursions, as appropriate to each module.
As a graduate in anatomical sciences you will have an excellent grounding for a career in, or further training for, biomedicine and related fields including clinical laboratory medicine and forensic science.
Many of you will contribute to a better understanding of the basis of human disease, taking higher degrees and then going on to careers in biomedical research. You will also be welcomed into applied research and development in the biotechnology industries. Some of you will go on to teach in schools and universities.
