The UTS Surgical and Anatomical Science Facility is one of Australia’s foremost dedicated human anatomical laboratories. The facility has world-class specimen viewing and preparation areas, fitted with cutting edge equipment and technologies that allow students and their teachers to work in a safe and comfortable environment as they enhance both their practical skills and their anatomical knowledge.
The core activities of the facility lie in three main areas:
- support for anatomical teaching,
- support for commercial surgical developments; and
- support for anatomical and scientific research.
The facility supports anatomical teaching across both undergraduate and postgraduate biomedical training contexts and provides an ideal environment for ongoing anatomical training for clinical disciplines. It supports research and development as well as training by commercial enterprises, specialising in the development of new surgical procedures and technologies for modern clinical medical practice.
Our team of highly skilled technical and academic staff provides anatomical teaching and research resources that set a standard of excellence, designed to meet the increasing challenges of modern surgical and anatomical practice.
