Welcome to the Discipline of Anatomy

Human anatomy is taught to the undergraduate students of Medicine, Dentistry, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Clinical Speech and Language Studies, Human Health and Disease, Neuroscience and Radiation Therapy, and to postgraduate students undertaking the MSc in Sports and Exercise Medicine.

Anatomy courses are of a mixed-mode instruction model consisting of lectures and practical classes on regional and systemic anatomy. Donor donations are at the heart of our anatomy teaching program. Vertical integration is central to delivery and topics covered include the limbs, thorax, abdomen, pelvis, head, neck, the nervous system, and embryology.

Our research activities are based in anatomy, radiology, neuroscience, metabolism, pedagogy, and exercise. Research proposals and interest are welcomed.

The discipline is currently staffed by five Assistant Professors, a Teaching Fellow, Anatomy Demonstrators, Postgraduate Students, two Chief Technical Officers, two Chief Technical Officer Specialists, a Research Assistant, and a Senior Executive Officer.

Specific short courses for surgeons in training and other continuous professional development courses involving human anatomy are facilitated by the discipline.

The discipline is located at the Biomedical Sciences Institute, Trinity College Dublin, Dublin 2. For further information or enquiries, please contact
