Anatomy hacks for international visitors
A/Prof Quentin Fog & Georga Bruechert (School of Biomedical Sciences) host interactive workshop in Anatomy Museum for visiting school counsellors.
Held in the Harry Brookes Allen Museum of Anatomy and Pathology, the Anatomy Hacks Workshop, was led by Associate Professor Quentin Fogg and Associate Lecturer Georga Bruechert both from the Dept of Anatomy & Physiology in the School of Biomedical Sciences.
The workshop gave the international attendees the rare chance to view parts of the collection in the museum, observe a digital, interactive cross-section of the human body and hear the latest advancements of prosthetic hands.
The group also discovered the anatomy and function of their own hands and fingers.
“The facilities here are impressive - what the students can learn at the undergraduate level, the tools and technology available…the academic choices, the facilities, the mix of historical buildings and new cutting-edge buildings,” participants said.
The workshop was part of a week long program of events at the University for international school counsellors invited from Sri Lanka, United Arab Emirates, India and Vietnam.
