An interactive course which gives students in depth knowledge of the human body and the skills necessary for the analysis and identification of human remains.
The course is centred around human anatomy as the identification of the deceased relies heavily on not only hard tissue like the skeleton but also soft tissue information. You will be trained in our dedicated laboratories in the world renown Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification (CAHID). You will learn to dissect on our Thiel embalmed cadavers and have access to our extensive skeletal collections, both adult and juvenile. You have the opportunity to learn from our case active academic staff who are world leaders in their fields. This course is a great first step on the ladder to becoming a forensic practitioner.
