In small groups, you will dissect a cadaveric subject and be expected to investigate anatomical variations, pathologies and evidence of procedures present in their subject, building this into an extensive research portfolio. This work will be supported by integrated functional and clinical seminars for each of the regions of the body.
The Advanced Dissection and Research Portfolio units underpin the entire course and dictate which body region is discussed in the associated seminar. Over 24 weeks, you will dissect your subject in small groups, taking note of evi…
