19 Dec 2016
Anatomy class in FLAME laboratory Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience

A new five day course introducing the study of anatomy to transition students has just been launched by the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience. Exploring the structure and function of the human body at multiple levels the course will take place on the 8th -12th May 2017.

This course will be of interest to students planning studies in human anatomy, and for those interested in pursuing careers in medicine or other health-care fields. Successful applicants have an opportunity to study and work alongside staff and students in the department of Anatomy and Neuroscience getting exposure to careers in Anatomy, Neuroscience, Medical Education & Simulation. The week will also include a visit to the Boole Library and a guided tour of UCC campus.

The transition year anatomy five day course will explore the structure and function of the human body at multiple levels: individual cells, their coming together to form tissues, the organisation of tissues into organs, organs working together as parts of organ systems, and finally how those organ systems support one another to maintain the body. Normal structure and function are presented as a starting point, and then the effects of disease processes on structure and function are examined. The effects of disease are also considered at multiple levels, from cells to organ systems, and then beyond the effects on individuals to how diseases affect populations and societies.
