School of Medicine

Anatomy Centre

A thorough knowledge of anatomy is essential for those who wish to work in medicine, surgery and pathology.

Our medical students explore the structure and function of the human body in a state-of-the-art anatomy laboratory. Led by tutors and skilled technicians, students use dissection on Thiel embalmed cadavers – people who have donated their bodies to medical science. They are then able to apply what they've learnt in clinical settings. One of our medical students, Fatima, has been blogging about her experiences in the Anatomy Centre.

Our Anatomy Centre features a large dissection room with ceiling-mounted computer screens, embalming facilities, radiology software, an innovative virtual dissector, 3D printed models from CT scans, and ultrasound machines.
