Anatomy

The School is responsible for the organisation and delivery of major teaching programmes in anatomy, including prosection sessions in the newly refurbished prosectorium. In addition the School offers a new part time postgraduate MSc in Functional and Clinical Anatomy.

The teaching of anatomy is based around keynote lectures and a programme of interactive small group teaching delivered by anatomy demonstrators using anatomy specimens, models and audio visual material. Our anatomy demonstrator positions are short term posts intended for junior clinicians wishing to develop their skills in Anatomy as a basis for further career development and preparation for future professional examinations. All anatomy demonstrators are given an induction programme to prepare them as effective teachers with training in teaching methods and skills. The main responsibility will be to teach Anatomy, including Topographical Anatomy, Neuroanatomy and Histology/Cell Biology Biology by means of small group teaching sessions and demonstration of prosected cadaveric material to undergraduate Medical, Dental and Science students in modularised courses run within the School of Medicine. There will also be a requirement to assist in the preparation of prosections. If you are interested and enthusiastic about anatomy (many demonstrators may be aspiring to surgery ), have excellent ccommunication skills, are flexible and a willing to work extra hours as required during busy periods and are committed to the delivery of high quality teaching you may be interested in taking up a short term anatomy demonstrator position.
