Teaching facilities

All students at King’s benefit from a comprehensive range of excellent facilities and services, from integrated library and IT coverage to pastoral and welfare support. In addition to College and School-wide services, the following teaching facilities have particularly close links with our subject areas and staff activities:

Anatomy Tutorial Room
Dissecting Rooms
The Gordon Museum
Osteology Store

Anatomy Tutorial Room

The Anatomy Tutorial Room is an ideal space for students to study in small groups with prosected specimens, models and museum pots. Some special materials are located here, such as embryological and pathological specimens. Staff can also arrange for other materials to be brought into the room from the dissecting rooms for study. The room is also suitable for presentations, with audio-visual facilities including video, Laserdisk and CD-ROMs.

Dissecting Rooms

There are two dissecting rooms based at the Guy’s Campus at King’s College London.

The Upper Dissecting Room has 38 double-tables, housing 50 cadavers. Some of the tables are used for displays that students may view outside of classes. Students may use the room for revision purposes. The room also houses museum pots, prosected parts, models and skeletal materials. X-ray sets, books, videos and dissection guides are also available for students to use.

The Lower Dissecting Room has 14 double tables, housing 12 cadavers. Students are encouraged to view prosected specimens here by arrangement with the technical staff and are allowed to study in the room. The room contains many specimens, pots and models, videos, CD-Roms and radiological materials to assist students in their study.

For further information (including enquiries from external organisations wishing to use the rooms), please contact

The Gordon Museum

The Gordon Pathology Museum is the largest medical museum in the UK, containing over 8,000 pathology specimens including the original specimens of kidneys, adrenal glands and lymph nodes which led Bright, Addison and Hodgkin to describe the conditions that bear their names. The museum’s primary function is to help train medical professionals to diagnose disease.  The collection continues to grow, with new specimens documenting emerging diseases. New techniques such as DNA analysis and magnetic resonance imaging are employed in search of new insights.

Osteology Store

The Osteology Store offers the hire of skeletons and skulls to medical, dental, physiotherapy and science students at King’s free of charge on an annual basis. Students are encouraged to hire a skeleton and/or skull from the Osteology Store to give them an opportunity to examine a body region in detail, especially in advance of dissection classes.
