ANATOMY: LOWER LIMB & FOOT

HBS2ALF

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject the anatomical principles and terminology introduced in HBS1HBB will be applied to the detailed study of the anatomy of the lower limb and the foot. 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 and on-line material will provide an outline of the major content of this subject, but students will be responsible for their own learning through a variety of online and practical learning activities integrated with clinical applications.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

Graduate Capabilities

Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Apply relevant anatomical principles to describe normal structure and function of body systems within the lower limb, and explain its role in support, locomotion and posture.
02. Apply relevant anatomical principles to describe normal structure and function of body systems within the foot, and explain its role in support, locomotion and posture.
03. Apply observational and communication skills, using 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
