In episode 10, which completes our "two-episode anatomy-themed series" we are joined by Dr Steven Jacques, Associate Professor and Head of Anatomy at Leicester Medical School. Dr Jacques shares with us his route from medical school to his current role, how curiosity to 'know how things work' drove his career and love of anatomy, and how the demands of medical school curriculum affects curiosity for learning.
Dr Jacques also shares his thoughts on the the importance of anatomy for future clinical practice, the role and value from learning with human tissue sources such as body donors and prosections, and how students can make the most of what is offered at medical schools for learning anatomy.
Note to listeners -we had a bit of a microphone glitch in the first half of the episode which we couldn't edit out. It disappears for the latter half so hopefully it isn't too annoying :(
