HUMAN ANATOMY A

HBS2HAA

2016

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, students gain knowledge in the anatomical principles of bones, joints, skeletal muscles, nerves, vessels and skin. These principles will be applied to regional anatomy of the lower limb. Embryological development relevant to an understanding of the gross anatomy will be covered in each region. Lectures will be supported by practical classes, including surface anatomy and examination of appropriate cadaver materials. Emphasis is placed on the application of anatomical principles to correlate structure with function in developing an understanding of the bases of everyday activities and related clinical problems.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Apply knowledge of anatomical principles to describe the normal structure and function of body systems.

Activities:
Based on information provided in lectures, classroom and cadaver-based practical sessions, and online discussion forums.

02. Apply relevant anatomical principles to describe normal structure and function of body systems within the lower limb, including its role in support, locomotion and posture.

Activities:
Based on information provided in lectures, classroom and cadaver-based practical sessions, and online discussion forums.

03. Interpret pathology based on sound knowledge of systemic, structural, functional and developmental anatomical principles

Activities:
Students will undertake research using lecture and practical workshop notes from this subject, as well as textbooks and library resources. Students will present their findings to their peers via a poster presentation (using powerpoint, pdf, or similar. Students will present in pairs.

04. Apply observational and communication skills, including 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:
Based on information provided in lectures, classroom and cadaver-based practical sessions, and online discussion forums.
