Lectures

Basic Anatomy

Read more

The lecture introduces medical and dental students to basic anatomy. The lecture provides and overview about all sub-disciplines, as in histology and microscopic anatomy, neuroanatomy and embryology. Topics are viewed from a systematic and a functional perspective.

Topographical Anatomy

Read more

The lecture „Topographical Anatomy“ complements the dissection course. It ties in with the (macroscopic) content of the lecture about basic anatomy and deliberately prepares the dissection practices. It prioritises focussing on one region and its three-dimensional connections.

Systematic and Functional Anatomy

Read more

The lecture „Functional Anatomy“ accompanies the dissection course. Other than the topographic lecture, it goes deeper into systematic and functional aspects of complex organ and functional systems and correlates them to clinical use.

Anatomy for Medical Engineers

Read more

The lecture series is obligatory (4h/week), as defined in the Module Handbook for the bachelor’s degree in medical engineering. All relevant organs, their structural and tissue setup will be discussed, and neuroanatomy and embryology will be included. Each structure will be looked at from a systematic as well as from a functional perspective. The following topics will be discussed in more detail: Sensory organs (sensor technology/for vital implants), the locomotor system (for biomechanics/mechatronic systems), gastrointestinal system (for minimal invasive surgery), cardiovascular system (for vital implants/anaesthesiology), cytology (for vital implants) nervous system (for neuromodulation and neuroplasticity/neuroprosthetics).

Anatomy for Molecular Medicine

Read more

The lecture series is obligatory (4h/week), as defined in the Module Handbook for the bachelor’s degree in molecular medicine. All relevant organs, their structural and tissue setup will be discussed, and neuroanatomy and embryology will be included. Each structure will be looked at from a systematic as well as from a functional perspective. The following topics will be discussed in more detail: Cytology, nervous system, histology (including techniques), microscopic anatomy of organ systems.

Anatomy for Medical Informatics

Read more

The lecture series is obligatory (4h/week), as defined in the Module Handbook for the bachelor’s degree in medical informatics. All relevant organs, their structural and tissue setup will be discussed, and neuroanatomy and embryology will be included. Each structure will be looked at from a systematic as well as from a functional perspective. The following topics will be discussed in more detail: Sensory organs (sensor technology/for vital implants), the locomotor system (for biomechanics/mechatronic systems), gastrointestinal system (for minimal invasive surgery), cardiovascular system (for vital implants/anaesthesiology), cytology (for vital implants) nervous system (for neuromodulation and neuroplasticity/neuroprosthetics).

The following topics will be discussed in more detail: Cytology, nervous system, histology (including techniques), microscopic anatomy of organ systems.

Anatomy for the Master’s Degree in Medical Engineering

Read more

The lecture series, organised by anatomy, discusses the topics „Endoscopy“ and „3D-visualisation, AR/VR“.

Demonstration of the Situs

Read more

The demonstration of the situs is obligatory to be allowed to take the dissection course for students of human and dental medicine. The students are introduced to the body donation programme. They learn about the background of working with specimens and of the modern body donation programme. At the end of the event a prepared body is dissected collectively.

Courses/Hands-on Training

Macroscopic Anatomy for Human Medicine

Read more

The dissection course for students of human medicine takes place over 40 course days or 120 course hours. Students are taught in groups of 10 at one dissection table. They learn to identify all structures, pathways, and cavities of the human body and to describe their positional relationships. Pathways of variants are analysed. Oral exams regularly accompany the classes. Aside from facts about structures and topography, students also learn competencies in communication and teamwork. They learn about spirituality and a reverberatory and responsible handling of body donors.

Macroscopic Anatomy for Dental Medicine

Read more

The dissection course for students of dental medicine has its own course schedule and differs in content from the class for students of human medicine. It takes place over 40 course days and has a total of 80 course hours, in which students are taught in groups of 10 at one dissection table. They learn to identify all structures, pathways, and cavities of the human body and to describe their positional relationships. Pathways of variants are analysed. Oral exams regularly accompany the classes. Aside from facts about structures and topography, students also learn competencies in communication and teamwork. They learn about spirituality and a reverberatory and responsible handling of body donors.

Microscopic Anatomy and Histology for Human Medicine

Read more

The histology course for human medicine at the Department of Anatomy is organised by the Institute of Neuroanatomy and Developmental Biology. The lessons are led by teachers of both anatomic institutes.

Microscopic Anatomy and Histology for Dental Medicine

Read more

The histology course for dental medicine at the Department of Anatomy is organised by the Institute of Neuroanatomy and Developmental Biology. The lessons are led by teachers of both anatomic institutes.

Seminar with Clinical Relevance for Dental Medicine

Read more

The online course with clinical relevance deepens the content of macroscopic anatomy by adding clinical casefiles.

Neuroanatomy for Dental Medicine

Read more

The online course neuroanatomy teaches detailed content about the CNS (cortex areas, core areas, pathways, connectivities) and the sensory organs, in addition to the lecture Basic Anatomy.

OP-License

Read more

The OP-license is part of the curriculum in semester 4. Students learn the correct behaviour in the OR. The class is led by surgical nurses and surgical assistants. Prior to the hands-on course, students are taught the basics of hospital hygiene in a joint lecture with the Institute of Medical Microbiology and Hygiene.

Head/Neck for Dental Medicine

Read more

In addition to the lecture Basic Anatomy, first term students of dental medicine are introduced to the relevant head/neck area.

Classes

Propaedeutics Anatomy

Read more

This class for first term students supplements the content taught in the lecture Basic Anatomy. Guidance teachers and tutors will intensify the content of the lecture in form of oral presentations, demonstrations on models and a prepared situs. The locomotor system is taught in cooperation with the Department of General Medicine in an examination course.

Seminar with Clinical Relevance

Read more

The course with clinical relevance accompanies the dissection course. Topographical anatomy is put into a clinical context by casefiles, radiologic images, and short surgical videos.

Neuroanatomy

Read more

Neuroanatomy at the Department of Anatomy is organised by the Institute of Neuroanatomy and Developmental Biology. The lessons are led by teachers of both anatomic institutes.

Extracurricular Classes

Advanced Dissection Course (Dissection Course for Tutors)

Read more

In the Advanced Dissection Course dissection steps from the dissection course are repeated and further dissection techniques are studied. The course meets the requirements for the obligatory specialised training for tutors as defined in the Docendo-Discimus programme. Students receive a certificate for passing the Advanced Dissection Course. They are now allowed to tutor other students in the dissection course.

Professional Medical Behaviour (“Kopfsache-Seminar”)

Read more

The seminar „Kopfsache“ is an optional class offered to medical and dental students at the same time as the dissection course. Students reflect working with body donors and are supported by tutors, teachers, physicians of psychosomatics, hospital and university chaplains.

Sectio chirurgica

Read more

Sectio chirurgica is a digital lecture by the Clinical Anatomy Tübingen, which is very popular at many universities. Experienced surgeons demonstrate realistic surgical procedures on human specimens. These procedures are explained further by anatomists and students, who also jointly host each lecture.
