Anatomical knowledge is fundamental to medical and dental students and we work closely with the Medical School at Ninewells Hospital and the Dental School at Dundee Dental Hospital to ensure that students are provided with a solid understanding of anatomy that is clinically relevant. We have a strong focus on hands-on experience - whole body dissection, the possibility to practice clinical procedures and learning to interpret medical images all allow you to develop your practical skills as well as strengthen your knowledge and understanding gained in lectures and workshops. The aim of the anatomy teaching is to help you feel comfortable and confident with the human body in your clinical practice.
