Our Human Anatomy of the internal organs and its medical applications course aims to give you advanced practical experience in the gross anatomy of thorax and abdomen via hands-on dissection. The Anatomy programme is offered by the University of Glasgow.  


The Human Anatomy course at University of Glasgow is fundamentally an intensive practical course with no formal lectures. During dissection sessions, clinical aspect of normal functional anatomy will be emphasised.

The course may be suitable for you if you are:

  • an advanced medical student who has already completed the preclinical years and you wish to consolidate your anatomical knowledge via practical experience (particularly if you did not have a comprehensive dissection experience during your anatomy course)
  • an early stage clinical trainee, who wishes to consolidate anatomical knowledge via practical experience in the view of its clinical application
  • an early stage lecturer in anatomy with a need to re-enforce anatomical knowledge
  • a biomedical engineer with a particular interest in the application and design of medical devices.

Assessment and credits:

  •  This course has no assessment and is non credit bearing.

Programme Structure

  • This course gives you the opportunity to deepen your anatomical knowledge by means of practical dissection, without the immediate pressure of having to take an exam.
  • You will develop your dissection dexterity supervised by an enthusiastic team of anatomists over a week-long intensive period. By the end of the course you will be able to describe anatomical relations of thorax and abdomen and be able to put this knowledge in relevant context of medical applications.
