Applied Anatomy at University of Bristol - UCAS

Course summary

Our teaching philosophy delivers a practical, hands-on and student-centred approach to all aspects of learning. The course will facilitate your journey from school leaver to independent critical thinker and anatomist. Your first year introduces the principles of comparative anatomy and the structure of the major mammalian body systems. Teaching involves some dissection and study of human and animal prosected cadaveric specimens. Your second year covers detailed human and veterinary anatomy. It also provides you the opportunity to further your existing anatomical knowledge and understanding by exploring the dissection of cadaveric specimens. Units in the second year emphasise functional and clinical relevance and application throughout. In your final year, you will follow seminar-based units, in which you will be actively involved in expert-led discussions of the latest anatomical research. The key focus of this year is an original research project aligned to your future ambitions. Our unit in research skills will give you all the tools you need to complete your project. A personal and professional development theme runs through the course and equips you with essential discipline-specific and transferable skills for future employment. Applied Anatomy BSc graduates enter a wide range of career paths and use their skills in a variety of fields including research, professions allied to health, journalism, and education. Our graduates go on to pursue a PhD or an MSc degree in anatomy, biomedical sciences, clinical sciences or imaging. Many of our graduates go on to study medicine, veterinary medicine, or dentistry. Other graduates choose to use their transferable skills in non-scientific careers. You will learn in a friendly and vibrant environment by enthusiastic teaching staff and have access to many student study spaces, anatomy museums, imaging suites, and a wide range of online resources to supplement your learning.
