The University of Aberdeen boasts a state of the art anatomy facility now housed in the Suttie Centre on the Foresterhill Health Campus.

In the anatomy department, our students begin an exciting  journey of discovery of human morphology, gaining excellent hands on knowledge of the whole body through the use of our prosected cadaveric specimens. Students are guided throughout this voyage by our friendly and dedicated team of anatomy staff as well as visiting clinicians from a range of surgical, dental and medical specialties, allowing students to seamlessly weave in-depth knowledge of traditional anatomy with its clinical applications.

In addition to traditional learning using cadaveric material, we are proud to house a state of the art 3D anatomy learning resource allowing the integration of 3D virtual anatomy into lectures and other teaching scenarios. A full range of online anatomy resources are accessible on-site and/or remotely to all of our students.

An enthralling, world renowned collection of historical models, specimens and artwork is located right on our doorstep, within our in-house Anatomy Museum, ready to quench the thirst of all students with an historical or artistic medical interest.

Whole body bequests are important for supporting teaching and research for medical and science students. Please visit our bequeathals page for more information.
