Developing integrated teaching techniques in clinical anatomy Developing integrated teaching techniques in clinical anatomy

Anatomy and Physiology 4th (Complete University Guide 2017)Welcome to the University's Clinical Anatomy Department. Our aim is to provide high quality anatomy education to future and current healthcare professionals; honouring the wishes and desires of individuals who generously bequeath their remains.


We are part of the Department of Medical Education in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and serve the medical students of Norwich Medical School. We also teach nursing students, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, paramedics, and speech and language therapists from the School of Rehabilitation Sciences.

Our integrated approach to clinical anatomy offers first-class learning opportunities, with selected seminars, targeted cadaveric dissections with clinical scenarios and clinical teaching by practicing doctors. Bespoke workbooks with original illustrations and interactive tools are available to support students and clinicians.

Our Anatomy courses were rated 4th in the UK according to the Complete University Guide (2017), with our MBBS students reporting high levels of satisfaction with the quality of teaching provided by our teachers and clinicians according to end-of-year feedback (2015-16).

Research and Development

We offer research projects for our students undertaking intercalated Masters in Medical Education and Research in the field of clinical anatomy and surgery.

We provide facilities to postgraduates and offer specialist cadaveric dissection courses. These courses use fresh-frozen cadavers and enable delegates to learn basic or advanced technical skills to develop their competence.


Our state-of-the-art facilities enable us to teach clinical anatomy to undergraduate and postgraduate students. Our bespoke anatomy laboratory offers students the opportunity to be taught in small or large groups.

We offer embalmed and fresh-frozen cadaveric material, a large sample of prosections and anatomical models, a contemporary audio-visual system, and electronic tablets to support students in their learning.

Teachers and experts are welcome to contact our department for more information at
