The Centre for Anatomical and Human Sciences brings together research and teaching in anatomical and human sciences. The Centre has strong working relations with Centre for Medical Engineering Technology - Hull with which we engage in outstanding research in musculoskeletal biomechanics, and with the Centre for Human Palaeoecology and Evolutionary Origins – York, which is an interdisciplinary research centre in human evolution and palaeoecology that brings together York’s world-leading expertise in evolutionary anatomy, ancient DNA, biodiversity, psychology, palaeoenvironmental studies, prehistory and geochronology.
Our teaching reflects our focus on human anatomy and evolution. We deliver extensive undergraduate teaching to our medical students in both core medical anatomy and specialist areas such as human evolution and evolutionary medicine. We also teach human and primate evolution to undergraduates outside the medical school.
At postgraduate levels, we offer MSc programmes, both taught and by research, as well as doctoral training in our fields of expertise.
We also run a series of short courses in specialist and applied areas of anatomy and anatomical science.
