HUMAN ANATOMY A

HBS2HAA

2017

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. Topic material will be presented through video clips, but students will be responsible for their own learning through supported practical activities, 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 basis of everyday activities and related clinical problems.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Upon successful completion of this subject, you should be able to apply knowledge of anatomical principles to describe the normal structure and function of the body systems.

Activities:
Students will independently study information provided in videos and subject manual objectives, and apply this information in classroom and cadaver-based practical sessions and online discussion forums. Assessment will be via practical tests and an end-of-semester exam.
