HUMAN ANATOMY B

HBS2HAB

2018

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, the anatomical principles of bones, joints, skeletal muscles, nerves, vessels and skin are applied to regional anatomy of the trunk and upper limb. Embryological development relevant to an understanding of the gross anatomy will be covered in each region. Lectures will be supported by practical classes, including surface anatomy and examination of appropriate cadaver material. Emphasis is placed on the application of anatomical principles to correlate structure with function in developing an understanding of the bases of everyday activities and related clinical problems.

Special conditions Students provisionally enrol via student online by 30th November. Student online will be closed for selection following this date. Late enrolment may be considered. Priority enrolment is given to students taking the subject as a core requirement. Selection based on first year WAM and subject quota for all other students. Unsuccessful students will be withdrawn from the subject and notified via e-mail by the end of the year. Students should check their enrolment status online. Students are required to provide their own laboratory coat (about $30) when in any cadaver-based teaching laboratory. Students must also wear closed-toe shoes in cadaver-based teaching laboratories.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Apply relevant anatomical principles to compare and contrast the upper and lower limbs with reference to both anatomical structure and function.

Activities:
Students will undertake research using lecture and practical workshop notes from this subject and the prerequisite semester 1 subject Human Anatomy A (HBS2HAA), as well as textbooks and library resources. Students will present their findings to their peers via an oral presentation using powerpoint (or similar). Students will present in small groups.

02. Apply relevant anatomical principles to describe normal structure and function of body systems within the upper limb, including its role in manipulation and posture.

Activities:
Based on information provided in lectures, classroom and cadaver-based practical sessions, online blended learning activities, and online discussion forums.

03. Apply relevant anatomical principles to describe normal structure and function of body systems within the vertebral column, including its role in support and posture.

Activities:
Based on information provided in lectures, classroom and cadaver-based practical sessions, and online discussion forums.

04. Apply relevant anatomical principles to describe normal structure and function of body systems in the thoracic region, including its role in respiration and circulation.

Activities:
Based on information provided in lectures, classroom and cadaver-based practical sessions, and online discussion forums.

05. Apply relevant anatomical principles to describe normal structure and function of body systems in the abdominal region, including its role in movement and posture.

Activities:
Based on information provided in lectures, classroom and cadaver-based practical sessions, and online discussion forums.

06. Apply observational and communication skills, including appropriate medical terminology, to make accurate observations of anatomical structures or events and infer their relationship to function using cadaveric material, the living body or medical imaging in a laboratory environment.

Activities:
Based on information provided in lectures, classroom and cadaver-based practical sessions, and online discussion forums.
