The importance of anatomy within contemporary clinical medicine has grown substantially with the development of both imaging and interventions beyond those traditionally limited to surgical disciplines.
These include diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology; community based imaging such as ultrasonography, anaesthesia and pain management; endoscopic investigations and endoscopically delivered therapies, interventional cardiology. Most new medical graduates will be involved to some extent in these techniques.
An intercalated degree in Clinical Anatomy provides the opportunity for you to gain experience in this area through a bespoke anatomy course for students between years 3 and 4, or years 4 and 5 of their MBChB programme.
Students studying medicine following successful completion of their third or fourth year and who will return to the fourth or fifth year of the MBChB course on completion of the intercalation. The programme is not available before you have completed at least one year of clinical training.
