Anatomy Demonstrators 

Department :
    Biosciences Education 

Anatomy Demonstrators teach and supervise (via tutorials, dissections and other classes) undergraduate students in the Department of Anatomy, as well as those students studying Dental and Medical programmes.

Demonstrators are also involved in the teaching of external groups (e.g. osteopathic medicine, sport therapy, nursing etc.). They may be required occasionally to assist in the setting and marking of “spot” examinations. Some of our Demonstrators are also required to design, teach and assess a series of tutorials on the Advanced Human Anatomy module. All Demonstrators are required to produce prosections to be used for teaching. 

All Demonstrators are given expert guidance on the subject of Anatomy and given training for postgraduate surgical and radiological examinations. The education programme is currently led by Professor Harold Ellis. All Demonstrators will be given reasonable time to sit professional surgical examinations and to attend recognised courses of study. They will receive instruction on aspects of Clinical Anatomy relevant to the classes in which they are involved. These will be delivered by academic members of the Department responsible for organising the Dental, Medical and Science courses. 

All Demonstrators are offered research opportunities, which are discussed with them upon arrival. Supervision and guidance for these projects are given by the academic staff of the Department. Demonstrators are encouraged to present their projects at a scientific meeting (e.g. British Association of Clinical Anatomy), and to submit an abstract or paper for publication. Such research is not obligatory but useful in today's competitive postgraduate training. 

Weekly teaching meetings provide a forum for the Demonstrators to discuss any issues and plan for the week ahead.
