PATHOPHYSIOLOGY, ANATOMY AND NEUROSCIENCES

HBS3PAN

2015

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject the principles and terminology introduced in HBS1HBA and HBS1HBB and extended in HBS2ALU will be applied to the detailed study of 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 techniques 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 practical activities and integrated enquiries 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:
Lectures, on-line learning activities, anatomy practical classes

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

Activities:
Lectures, on-line learning activities, anatomy practical classes

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:
Anatomy practical classes, clinical anatomy practical classes

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:
Lectures, on-line learning activities, practical classes

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

Activities:
Lectures, on-line learning activities, practical classes
