HUMAN ANATOMY A

HBS2HAA

2019

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

Activities:
Students will watch video clips, attend lectures and practicals then independently study texts and subject manual objectives. Assessment will be via practical tests, team report and an end-of-semester exam.

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:
Students will attend lectures and practicals then independently study texts and subject manual objectives. Assessment will be via practical tests, team report and an end-of-semester exam.

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

Activities:
Students will attend practicals and work independently or in groups to identify relevant structures. Resources include anatomical models, plastinated sections, skeletons, medical images and cadaveric specimens. Assessment will be via a team report and a poster

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:
Students will attend practicals and work independently or in groups to identify relevant structures. Resources include anatomical models, plastinated sections, skeletons, medical images and cadaveric specimens. Assessment will be via practical tests.
