Dr Lauren Clunie


Lecturer in Clinical Anatomy

Role at Hull York Medical School

Lauren is involved in the delivery of anatomy teaching for the Masters of Clinical Anatomy (and Education) and the MBBS and Physician Associate programmes. She is also heavily involved in the development and delivery of the newly introduced Gateway to Medicine Programme.

She has an interest in developing novel anatomy teaching techniques and how these can be incorporated to supplement traditional anatomy curricula. In particular, she is passionate about the use and evaluation of technology-enhanced learning resources within anatomy education.


Before joining Hull York Medical School in 2019, Lauren lived and studied in Leeds, UK. Her PhD investigated the factors influencing students use of technology-enhanced learning (TEL) resources and examined the current levels of TEL evaluation within the field of anatomical education. During this time she was also heavily involved in teaching at the University of Leeds as an anatomy demonstrator.

Prior to this, Lauren had a role at the University of Glasgow that involved teaching anatomy to medical students, speech and language therapists and to students on the MSc in Medical Visualisation and Human Anatomy programme - a programme Lauren completed in 2013, achieving a pass with distinction
