HUMAN ANATOMY C

HBS3HAC

2018

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, the anatomical principles and terminology introduced in HBS2HAA/HBS2HAB will be applied to the detailed study of head, neck, thoracic and abdominopelvic anatomy. Lectures will provide an outline of the major content of this subject, but students will be responsible for their own learning through various practical activities. A written anatomically based group research project will also form part of this subject. Emphasis is placed on the application of anatomical principles to correlate structure with function in developing an understanding of the basis of everyday activities and related clinical problems.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Independently source, assimilate and appraise basic anatomical principles relating to head and neck anatomy

Activities:
Students will attend lectures and practicals then independently study texts and subject manual objectives. Assessment will be via practical tests and an end-of-semester exam.

02. Independently source, assimilate and appraise basic anatomical principles relating to thoracic and abdominopelvic anatomy.

Activities:
Students will attend lectures and practicals then independently study texts and subject manual objectives. Assessment will be via practical tests and an end-of-semester exam.

03. Use available anatomical resources to competently identify a given anatomical structure, presented either as an image or in situ, and evaluate its orientation and operation within the body.

Activities:
Students will attend practicals and work independently or in groups to identify relevant structures. Resources include anatomical models, plastinated sections, skeletons, medical images and cadeveric specimens. Assessment will be via practical tests.

04. Work independently and collaboratively in a team to develop a well-integrated, evidence based anatomical report of a specific region of the human body.

Activities:
Students will work independently and as a group to research a region of the body. As a group students will prepare and submit a written review of the region. This group research task will be assessed.
