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 back, the lower limb and the upper limb and hand. 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. The subject is taught in a blended mode. Lectures and on-line activities will provide an outline of the major content of this subject, but students will be responsible for their own learning using all the learning activities.
