HUMAN ANATOMY C

HBS3HAC

2016

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, the anatomical principles and terminology introduced in HBS2HAA/HBS2HAB will be applied to the detailed study of anatomy of the head and neck, plus a dissection based research enquiry. Lectures will provide an outline of the major content of this subject, but students will be responsible for their own learning through various practical activities. A research enquiry involving cadaver dissection will constitute approximately one-third of this subject. 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. Upon successful completion of this subject, you should be able to independently source, assimilate and appraise basic anatomical principles relating to head and neck anatomy

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. Upon successful completion of this subject, you should be able to use available anatomical resources to competently identify a given anatomical structure, presented either as an image or in situ, and clearly recognise and evaluate its orientation and operation within the body

Activities:
Students will work independently and in small groups during designated practical times and outside set times. They will have access to numerous anatomical resources (cadavers, models, skeletons, medical imaging, plastinated sections, computer-based anatomy resources and texts). Assessment will be via practical tests and an end-of-semester exam.

03. Upon successful completion of this subject, you should be able to work independently and collaboratively in an interdisciplinary team to examine dissection procedures. You will then prepare a written review describing technique plus structure and function of key anatomical structures exposed

Activities:
In a small group students will research the anatomy of a selected region of the human body. They will also research dissection techniques. Following this, students will write and submit a dissection proposal for assessment.

04. Upon successful completion of this subject, you should be able to work independently and collaboratively in a team to perform an anatomical dissection

Activities:
Students will perform their proposed dissection as a group. Research and dissection skills, plus final dissection specimen will be assessed.

05. Upon successful completion of this subject, you should be able to work independently and collaboratively in a team to develop a well-integrated, evidence based anatomical practical report and presentation

Activities:
Students will document their dissection task and develop an oral presentation for assessment.
