The Anatomy team, located in the Medical Teaching Building on the University of Sussex campus, Falmer, is an integral part of learning at BSMS. It is also utilised by the Universities of Brighton and Sussex’s health professional programmes and hosts a considerable number of external events including surgical training courses. The team also has a range of human cadaveric dissection teaching videos which will also form part of the web-based platform.
