Requirements
  • Have a very basic understanding of human anatomy
Description

This course on human anatomy with a emphasis on surgical implications is based on our hugely popular podcast series and the lectures are broken up into the following subjects:

  • Limbs
  • Thorax
  • Abdomen
  • Head and Neck
  • Embryology

The material is presented with over 1100 diagrams and over 22 hours of audio.

The material is presented by Dr Robert Whitaker who spent his clinical career as a paediatric urological surgeon. Having retired from surgery, Dr Whitaker now teaches clinically applied topographical anatomy to first-year medical students at the University of Cambridge, in the UK. He also teaches clinically applied anatomy to surgical, radiological and other speciality trainees and is a former examiner for the MRCS at the English and Edinburgh Colleges of Surgeons. Dr Whitaker is also the co-author of the top selling book Instant Anatomy.
