Module prerequisites:This course is open to BSc students who have completed the full unit ANAT 2050, on first entry, with a high 2:1 or first class mark. It is also open to IBSc students in Anatomy/ Cell & Developmental Biology, provided they have passed the relevant courses, again on first entry, with marks of 65% or better. However, course numbers are capped. When there are more candidates than places, as there generally are, then year 2 grades (final marks and spot marks) will be taken into consideration. 
Module outline:This course offers students the opportunity to continue their studies of human anatomy through dissection, comparison, and reading related literature. Each student will focus on a specific dissection project, chosen by them in consultation with the course tutors. This will be complimented by a course work portfolio. 
Module aims:To consolidate and deepen the students’ knowledge of human limb anatomy, and to provide an introduction to a more scientific approach to the study of morphology through an individual dissection project and a review of relevant literature. 
Module objectives:Each student will produce a detailed dissection of a specific area. This will be complimented by a course work portfolio including dissection plan, objectives, and report, and two short essays relating to the anatomy of the region, one on a topic of clinical or developmental relevance, and the other on a topic of comparative anatomical interest. 
Key skills provided by module:The student will gain experience in fine dissection, writing and presentation skills. Moreover, the student will learn to plan and organize their final presentation independently.
