Anatomy is a diverse, vibrant, and visual subject. It explores the relationship between the structure of the body and the functions it performs, and can be studied from microscopic to macroscopic levels. This programme is ideal for those who want to pursue careers in health professions such as Medicine, Dentistry and Physiotheraphy, to research and teaching at university or secondary and primary school, to technical work in medical or agricultural laboratories, to sales, marketing, and research positions with pharmaceutical, medical, or agribusiness companies, or national bodies. In the first year, students will be introduced to the structure, function, and development of the various systems in the human body. Students will also learn about the biology of cells and human genetic variation, the diversity of microorganisms, and microbial virulence and diseases. Students will also take other general first-year papers, including Chemistry or Physics. At the end of the first year, students will have a good basic knowledge of the whole body, be able to recognise the difference cells and their organelles, and have a basic understanding of how the human body systems work. The skills and knowledge learnt at first year will then be developed more in-depth in second- and third-year papers which cover human cells and systems, neurobiology, reproductive and developmental biology, functional anatomy, cell biology, and biological anthropology.
