There will be opportunities to develop and deliver innovative teaching and learning approaches in anatomy and you may contribute to courses for a range of postgraduate professionals including surgeons, anaesthetists and other health professionals. In addition, there will be opportunities to undertake leadership, management and engagement activities within the Faculty.
