Overview

This MSc in Clinical Anatomy and Education at the University of York  combines the core modules from the MSc in Clinical Anatomy programme with our Higher Education Academy-accredited MSc in Health Professions Education programme – putting you on a pathway to become an Associate Fellow of the Academy and gain the right to use the post-nominal letters AFHEA.

Unlike a basic anatomy course, this programme will allow you to develop a deep understanding of the complex nature of the human body and how that relates to clinical practice – so you can effectively evaluate, diagnose and treat illnesses in your future career.

You will also be trained in pedagogical techniques that will equip you with the skills to teach anatomy to students and healthcare professionals in your future clinical career.

The programme is built around core dissection-based modules covering the whole body. You will carry out whole-body dissection in small teaching groups during formal dissection sessions, and at your own pace in your own self-directed learning time, using cadavers embalmbed with both Thiel, that ensures material is as close to living tissue as possible, and Formalin, that keeps the material in defined anatomical relationships.

This programme also provides a comprehensive professional education that focuses on developing teachers and researchers of anatomy. You can choose from a range of Education electives, where you will study alongside students on the MSc in Health Professions Education programme, accredited by the Higher Education Academy. Your research project/dissertation will also cover an educational topic.

You will have the unique opportunity to learn from experts in their field who are at the forefront of new developments in clinical anatomy and health professions education, as well as visiting surgeons and consultants. As well as learning from their expertise, you will be challenged to think differently and learn skills to become a self-directed learner as you continue to develop your anatomy knowledge throughout your clinical career – and ultimately make a difference to patients’ lives.

Careers

Students on these programmes come from a diverse range of backgrounds and go on to develop careers in surgery, clinical practice and allied health disciplines. This programme is also invaluable if you are a practising clinician or healthcare professional considering an academic career or a career in medical education.
