ANATOMY: LOWER LIMB & FOOT

HBS2ALF

2018

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject the anatomical principles and terminology introduced in HBS1HBB will be applied to the detailed study of the anatomy of  the lower limb and the foot. The concept of integrated function of multiple body systems will be developed in each region and relevant medical imaging techniques and clinical assessment skills will be incorporated. Lectures and on-line material will provide an outline of the major content of this subject, but students will be responsible for their own learning through a variety of online and practical learning activities integrated with clinical applications.
