Anatomy laboratory

Anatomy laboratories have been established on both the Brisbane (McAuley at Banyo) and North Sydney (MacKillop) Campuses. Respective state health Departments licence the school to conduct anatomical teaching in compliance with the Transplantation and Anatomy Act 1979 and the Transplantation and Anatomy Regulation 2004.

The University is guided in all its endeavours by a fundamental concern for justice and equity, and for the dignity of all human beings. The University recognises and acknowledges the enormity and solemnity of the contribution that is made by those who donate their bodies for the purpose of providing learning resources to health practitioners, and by the loved ones of donors.

The University is committed to treating the human remains entrusted to its care with the utmost respect and professionalism.

The anatomy laboratories provide access to prosected human cadaveric material, anatomical models and eLearning resources to create a rich learning and teaching experience.

The laboratories are equally equipped, housing eight dissection tables, web enabled computing stations, iPads and sufficient space for students to engage in surface anatomy and kinesiology classes. Small student numbers ensure maximal learning interaction between students, teaching staff and teaching materials.

Safety is staff and students is a priority with a unique 100% dehumidified, cooled fresh air intake into the laboratory ensuring a constant supply of clean air. All Occupational Health and Safety requirements are maintained including safety showers, eyewashes, spill kits and laboratory attire as safety protocol.
