The programme is full-time over three semesters. The following Modules are taken in each Semester:
Human Gross Anatomy I 15 credits (Core Module)
Human Embryology 10 credits (Core Module)
Anatomy Pedagogy 5 credits (Elective Module*)
Biomechanics of Human Movemoment 5 credits (Elective Module*)
Human Gross Anatomy II 15 credits (Core Module)
Neuroanatomy 10 credits (Core Module)
Radiological Imaging 5 credits (Core Module)
Research Disseration 30 Credits (Core Module)
* Elective modules will run based on meeting the requirement for the minimum number of students.
The programme is designed to reinforce and advance the anatomical knowledge and dissection skills of the participants. Core modules will cover different anatomical sciences such as gross anatomy, neuroanatomy and human embryology.
Elective modules are designed to accommodate students with different interests. Students taking the Anatomy Pedagogy module will be taught to develop and deliver innovative anatomical teaching methods which include the use of new technologies.
Participants will have opportunities to develop radiological skills and experience in the Radiological Imaging module. In addition to the theoretical knowledge learnt, 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. The module on biomechanics of human movement will give students an understanding of structure/function relationships in the human body and a general understanding of rehabilitation techniques.
