Human anatomy is a core component of undergraduate medical degree programmes, as well as programmes allied to medicine such as radiography and physiotherapy.
However, the relative amount of anatomy taught on these programmes is considerably less than in years gone by, and there are limited opportunities across the UK (and further afield) for medical and dental students to gain an in-depth knowledge of human anatomy beyond their core programmes.
The university has established this programme not only to directly address this deficiency but also to offer an opportunity for graduate entry intercalating medical/dental students to significantly enhance their clinically-relevant anatomical knowledge and research skills.
Applicants must be currently studying for a MBChB, MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery), BDS (Bachelor of Dental Surgery), or equivalent and have gained either of the following:
a UK 2:1 honours degree or its international equivalent, or; at least three years of study and 360 credits gained from a MBChB, MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery), BDS (Bachelor of Dental Surgery), or equivalent.
