Description

Supervision of an undergraduate student who took part in an 8 week summer internship with the Centre for Biomedical Sciences Education. They worked on a projected titled, "Creating a revision and teaching resource for histology and anatomy."

The department uses digital pathology software to teach histology to vast numbers of students – this programme also has gross anatomy cross sections and images of various pathologies. The project aimed to explore and analyse the collection in order to select the best images and create online videos and self-test resources that students can use to study and revise. It offered a chance to gain valuable experience in project management and the educational process as well as a deeper understanding of histology, anatomy and pathology.
