Our MSc in Human Anatomy is a 12-month full-time programme that is uniquely designed to provide advanced training in clinically applied human anatomy.

While different pedagogies are used as part of this programme, cadaveric dissection is a crucial component of the course situated at our state-of-art FLAME laboratory. The FLAME laboratory takes its name from the sculpture Flame which was commissioned in recognition of the altruism of those who donate their bodies for medical education and research.

This MSc programme is designed to reinforce and advance the anatomical knowledge and dissection skills of the participants. Core modules cover different anatomical sciences such as gross anatomy, neuroanatomy and human embryology and elective modules are designed to accommodate students with different interests.

Participants will have opportunities to develop radiological skills and experience in the Radiological Imaging module (AN6009). In addition to the theoretical knowledge learned, participants will have access to practical experience in a range of radiological modalities e.g. CT, MRI, ultrasound, and PET. Students do not need prior experience in this type of imaging.

Why Choose This Course

This is the first taught MSc in Human Anatomy in the Republic of Ireland. It has a large cadaver-based dissection component which will provide participants with a unique and exceptional opportunity to develop their dissection and anatomical knowledge on human material. It will be based in the FLAME Laboratory, the department's newly constructed human anatomy research facility. Students will develop and deliver innovative teaching methods, will receive hands-on practical experience in radiological modalities, will design and implement an independent anatomy-related research project. The variety of assessment methods experienced in this course will provide students with skills they can employ in future careers.
