​​​​​​​​​​​​"I profess to learn and to teach anatomy not from books but from dissections, not from the tenets of Philosophers but from the fabric of Nature.​" ​William Harvey


Anatomy is one of the oldest medical disciplines and deals with the structure (macro- and microscopic) of living organisms. In South Africa, the utilisation of human material falls under the legal and statutory ​​​​requirements of the National Health Act of 2003 and as such is very stringently controlled.

​​​Clinical Anatomy is involved in the training of undergraduate students in all disciplines at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences (FMHS) as well as postgraduate students (including MMed. programmes). Click here for more information on our teaching and research facilities
