Unit description Unit description
Anatomy 3 will consist of a 16 day intensive period of dissections to be held in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences laboratory facilities. During this period anatomy lecturers will lead a series of dissections, each focusing on the areas of the body studied in anatomy units 1 and 2. Faculty affiliated surgical professors will also present their own specialist areas during this period. Formative assessment will consist of spot tests and individual presentations to the group. A practical test with a short answer written component will form the summative assessment.
