Anatomy encompasses all levels of structural organisation; topographical, neuroanatomical, histological, cellular and developmental. Knowledge and understanding of the anatomy of the human body is an essential part of medical, health science, sports science and many life science professions.
The Keele master's course in Anatomical Sciences is focused on the principles of anatomical research and clinically-applied anatomy. The course content integrates recent advances in molecular genetics, cell biology, microscopy, imaging and computer simulation, alongside gross cadaveric anatomy, and how these apply to biological and clinical problems concerning the human body.
The training centre is situated on the modern green campus of Keele University in North Staffordshire, which is halfway between Manchester and Birmingham. Keele’s central location means it is easy to get anywhere in the country with the M6 and rail links close at hand. There is ample on-site adjacent parking, and we offer a full service, including catering during the day, in one building.
Medical science is very grateful to those benevolent individuals who bequeath their bodies for use after their deaths, to help doctors and other health scientists learn the intricacies of the human body, prepare for clinical practice, and carry out medical research.
