HUMAN ANATOMY A

HBS2HAA

Not currently offered

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

Graduate Capabilities

Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Apply knowledge of anatomical principles to describe the normal structure and function of the body systems.
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
03. Interpret pathology based on sound knowledge of systemic, structural, functional and developmental anatomical principles
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.
