ANAT458 Current Topics in Anatomical Science

The paper is designed to provide a broad introduction to 400-level studies and is thus an important transitional link from undergraduate to postgraduate studies. Students will be introduced to research activities from across the Department and provided with core research skills that will assist them with their research projects. Sessions will include focus on written and verbal presentation skills, human and animal ethics, and statistics and data analysis. Students will employ these skills to present findings from their own research projects.
