Anatomy and Pathology
Anatomy and Pathology encompass the study of the normal and abnormal morphology of the body at macroscopic and microscopic levels. The emphasis in anatomy is on understanding how structure relates to function in humans and animals, and in pathology on developing an understanding of the causes, mechanisms of development and consequences of disease.
Members of the discipline include persons from a variety of academic backgrounds who are committed to excellence in teaching and research and to encouraging students to think and learn for themselves.
Together with a large group of clinical and affiliate title holders at SA Pathology, the Forensic Science Centre, the Royal Adelaide Hospital, the Adelaide Zoo and elsewhere, and with extensive collaboration with persons from other organizations at local, national and international levels, the Discipline of Anatomy and Pathology provides a vibrant supportive environment in which to begin and develop your career in the medical sciences.
