The Anatomy Laboratory

The Anatomy Laboratory offers students the opportunity for a hands-on approach to anatomy, offering full body dissection. Alongside dissection there is also access to an extensive osteology collection, anatomical museum specimens and prosected teaching specimens.

Our teaching is possible only because of the generosity of donors. Each year students and staff attend a service of thanksgiving to commemorate these donors and express our gratitude for their selfless act of donation.   

We work closely with the Centre for Integrative Anatomy (CIA) and the UCL Medical School (UCLMS) to help students study the anatomy they need to allow them to progress and thrive in their field of study. Students of anatomy go on to work in many fields of scientific and medical research: neurology, cellular development, pharmaceuticals and biomedical engineering, as well as careers in medicine and surgery.
