Anatomical sciences are fundamental to many other aspects of the biological sciences. Our course provides a good general university training, ranging from classical gross anatomy to post genomic molecular and cell biology. We have a strong focus on practical, hands-on, experience. The staff in the Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification (CAHID) are amongst the most experienced in the UK in the fields of human identification, forensic anthropology, craniofacial identification and the study of the human body. Staff deliver high quality anatomy teaching at all levels, via whole body dissection which allows students to develop a sound knowledge of the human body. The Centre was awarded a prestigious Queen's Anniversary Prize for Higher Education in November 2013. Presented in recognition of 'world class excellence', the Queen’s Anniversary Prizes are among the most highly-regarded awards for the UK’s universities and colleges. Anatomy at Dundee was ranked 1st in Scotland and 4th in the UK for Anatomy and Physiology by the Times Good University Guide 2013.
