PATHOPHYSIOLOGY, ANATOMY AND NEUROSCIENCES

HBS3PAN

2018

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, concepts introduced in HBS1HBA and HBS1HBB and extended in HBS2ALU will be applied to disease processes, the anatomy of the head and neck, and the study of neurosciences. Pathophysiology provides the fundamental principles of disease. General processes are emphasised including cell injury, inflammation, infection, healing, immunological disorders, neoplasia, and circulatory disturbances. In anatomy, the concept of integrated function of multiple body systems will be developed in each region and relevant medical imaging and clinical assessment skills will be incorporated. Lectures 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.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Apply relevant anatomical principles to describe normal structure and function of body systems within the head and neck, including its role in housing visceral structures, special sense organs and the central nervous system.

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. Apply relevant anatomical principles to describe normal structure and function of the central nervous system, including neural pathways for sensation and movement.

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. Apply observational and communication skills, including the use of 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:
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. Apply the relevant principles of General Pathology to selected disorders and reparative state to describe the cellular and biochemical changes that underlie the development of tissue injury, cellular death, cellular adaptations, acute and chronic inflammation, healing in various tissues, immunological disorders, benign tumours, malignant tumours, oedema, thrombosis, embolism, infarction, atherosclerosis and aneurysms.

Activities:
Students will attend lectures and workshops then independently study texts and subject manual objectives. Assessment will be via online tests and an mid-semester exam

05. Apply the relevant principles of General Pathology to describe how these above general pathologic processes impact on possible clinical courses and outcomes.

Activities:
Students will attend lectures and workshops then independently study texts and subject manual objectives. Assessment will be via online tests and an mid-semester exam
