University of Cambridge

Anatomy teaching with cadaveric dissection dates back over 450 years in the Cambridge Colleges, and 2016 marked the 300th anniversary of the establishment of the Anatomy School in Queens' Lane in 1716. Today, Cambridge continues to offer students the irreplaceable experience of full-body dissection in the Functional Architecture of the Body course. The Human Anatomy Teaching Group is based in the Anatomy Building and belongs to the Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience. In addition to providing anatomy teaching to medical students, members of the Group engage in clinically relevant research in topographical anatomy, collaborating with clinicians at Addenbrooke's Hospital and further afield. According to the Higher Education Statistics Agency, Cambridge is currently ranked first in the world for the study of anatomy and physiology.
