This module aims to help you develop a core knowledge and understanding of human anatomy.

The course consists of a programme of computer-based sessions that explore various anatomical topics. You should work through the material in the scheduled sessions, and complete the quizzes. You will find for your interest additional clinical material relating to disease. These parts (flagged as “clinical relevance”) are for interest only and should be viewed as optional extras.

In addition to the computer-based sessions there are two gross anatomy practical classes in the dissecting room when you will have the opportunity to examine human material.
