Module Learning Outcomes/Objectives
The student should be able to:
- Demonstrate a critical awareness of current theories underpinning an area of knowledge of applied clinical anatomy specifically chosen by the student.
- Demonstrate a high level of skill in human dissecting techniques and morphological procedures, with a reflective approach to personal development

Module Session Dates
Session dates 22 January 2018, 14 February 2018, 14 March 2018
Student led dates 3-6 April 2018 and 9-13 April 2018
To promote in-depth acquisition of applied clinical anatomical knowledge and skills, and the application of anatomical sciences within a chosen focus.
The course is aimed at students who have successfully studied the Applied Clinical Anatomy 1 module or an equivalent taught programme. For this module the candidates should normally have a first or second-class honours degree in a relevant subject and/or recognized professional qualification. However, applications will be considered if individuals can demonstrate an acceptable level of knowledge and will be invited to an in depth interview prior to admission to this module.
Through student-led tutorials, dissections, theoretical and practical studies the student will cover in depth the theoretical and practical aspects of knowledge relating to his or her chosen anatomical focus.
The student is expected to develop anatomical knowledge and skills by self-directed study. To assist this process the students will have the use of the Anatomy suite, Academic staff, discussion sessions and tutorials.
Portfolio; This will include section 1 (3000 word review paper) 50% weighting. Section 2 (4 laboratory reports, and a 2000 word reflective piece demonstrating experiential learning) 50% weighting.
