Division Anatomy and Developmental Biology


While the overall medical knowledge is on exponential increase, medical curricula have transformed into integrated, competence-oriented curricula. In particular in medicine, beyond traditional post-secondary academic education, sound comprehensive concepts for pregradute teaching, postgraduate training, and life-long-learning become imperative in order to meet the ever changing demands.

In the Health Sciences bachelor programme, the Division of Anatomy and Developmental Biology is responsible for the first-year module B02-Somatology and the third-year morphology-track of modules BM1-BM6. All modules integrate basic and clinical morphological sciences, i.e. anatomy, histology, embryology, diagnostic imaging, and pathology. In the third year, accompanying dissection classes form a continous teaching LINE perfectly completing the theoretical classes of BM1-BM6.

To students, who are not proficient in Latin, blended-learning classes in Medical Terminology are offered by the Division of Anatomy.

Scientific education is accomplished by offering and supervising bachelor-thesis and master-thesis projects.

In support of international student mobility and networking, the division is engaged in the bologna-process by coordinating the ERASMUS+ at the KL.
