MSc in Clinical Anatomy


We encourage and support Medicine students to take a year out of the programme to undertake an intercalated degree, to pursue areas of specialised knowledge outside the core curriculum.


Explore your interests

Intercalation is an opportunity to enrich your undergraduate Medicine degree by taking a year out of your programme during which you study a different undergraduate or postgraduate degree.

Here at Hull York Medical School, you can intercalate after your second year to study a specially designed intercalated BSc, or after your third year to study for an intercalated BSc, a Masters or in exceptional cases a PhD.

Whilst intercalation is not a requisite on our Medicine programme, we encourage all our students to consider this option to broaden their skills and knowledge and allow them to explore a new subject area.

You can choose to undertake your degree with us, or at another institution in the UK or even internationally.

Whether you study an undergraduate or postgraduate degree, intercalation is an opportunity to broaden your horizons, study a subject you are passionate about or help you to decide where your passion lies.

Gaining a MSc in Clinical Anatomy and Education was an unrivalled opportunity in my intercalation year. Not only will it help me to achieve my aspirations of becoming involved in medical education in the future alongside pursuing my passion for anatomy, but it will also be of value when applying for jobs and specialist training once I finish my Medicine degree.
