Institute of Anatomy
Anatomy is the study of the structure of the healthy human body. It comprises structures that are visible to the naked eye (macroscopic anatomy) and microscopically small structures (histology, cytology) as well as the changes of these structures over time in the development of the organism (embryology). Anatomy does not only provide descriptions of such structures but explores them in their functional correlations and with a view to their significance for clinical medicine (clinical anatomy).
Embedded in the Brandenburg medical model curriculum, the Institute conveys the fundamentals of anatomy required for the medical profession in seminars, internships and other teaching formats. It addresses all morphological issues and learning objectives arising in the context of problem-oriented and clinical studies. Prof. Winkelmann is one of the instructors at advanced training courses in dissection for anatomists organized by the Association of Anatomists on a regular basis.
Among Prof. Winkelmann's key research interests are the handling of "human remains" in the course of history and today, ethical issues involved in the use of human bodies in anatomical teaching and research, the history of anatomy as well as topics from educational research. Prof. Winkelmann chairs the Federative International Committee for Ethics and Medical Humanities within the international association of anatomists IFAA. Prof. Jüttemann (interim professorship / Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences) addresses medical history with a focus on the history of medicine in Brandenburg.
