The BMSc Anatomy has a strong emphasis on dissection using Thiel embalmed cadavers which retain their flexibility, colour and properties, providing a first class anatomical learning experience. Along with the in-depth study of structural and functional anatomy you will also carry out an anatomy based project on a clinical, surgical or basic sciences topic.

The intercalated BMSc course is aimed at those who have completed three years of an undergraduate medical course or two years of an undergraduate dental course.

Award-winning staff

The staff in the Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification (CAHID) are amongst the most experienced in the UK in the fields of human identification, forensic anthropology, craniofacial identification and the study of the human body. Staff deliver high quality anatomy teaching at all levels, via whole body dissection which allows students to develop a sound knowledge of the human body. 

The Centre was awarded a prestigious Queen's Anniversary Prize for Higher Education in November 2013. Presented in recognition of 'world class excellence', the Queen’s Anniversary Prizes are among the most highly-regarded awards for the UK’s universities and colleges.

Anatomy at Dundee was ranked 1st in Scotland and 4th in the UK for Anatomy and Physiology by the Times Good University Guide 2013.

For entry to the BMSc (Hons) Intercalated course you must have successfully completed three years of an undergraduate medical degree (MBChB/MBBS etc) or two years of an undergraduate dental course (BDS).
