Subject outline

In this subject the anatomical principles and terminology, introduced in HBS3HAD Human Anatomy D, will be applied to the detailed study of anatomical viscera and visceral systems of the human body. A research enquiry involving cadaver dissection will constitute approximately one-third of this subject. Emphasis will be 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 scenarios.
