Module code:ANAT3038 (Add to my personalised list)
Title:Advanced Anatomy
Credit value:.5
Division:Division of Biosciences
Module organiser (provisional):Dr Wendy Birch (Deputy Prof. Susan E. Evans)
Organiser's location:Anatomy Laboratory
Available for students in Year(s):3
Module prerequisites:This course is open to BSc students who have completed ANAT2050 with a grade of 65% or higher on first attempt and iBSc students in Anatomy/Cell and Developmental Biology, provided they have passed the relevant courses, again on first attempt with marks of 60% or higher. Please note, that course numbers are capped and there are usually more applicants than places. When this occurs 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, anatomical comparison and reading related literature. Each student will focus on one specific dissection project chosen by them in consultation with the course tutors. The focus is on limbs. The dissection will be complemented by a coursework portfolio. 
Module aims:The aim of the course is 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 on related clinical or comparative topics. 
Module objectives:Each student will produce a detailed dissection of a specific area. This dissection will be complemented by a coursework portfolio including a dissection plan, list of dissection objectives, a dissection report and an essay relating to the anatomy of the dissected region on a topic of clinical, comparative, developmental or functional interest. 
Key skills provided by module:The student will gain experience in dissection, research, writing and in presentation skills. Moreover, the student will learn to plan and organize their final presentation independently.  
Module timetable: 
Module assessment:Project Report 30.00%
Dissection Viva 70.00% 
Notes:Student numbers on this module are capped at 20.
