ANATOMY OF UPPER LIMB, HEAD & NEUROSCIENCES

HBS3AUN

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject the anatomical principles and terminology introduced in HBS1HBB and extended in HBS2ALT will be applied to the detailed study of the anatomy of the upper limb, the head and neck, and to the study of neurosciences. 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 will provide an outline of the major content of this subject, but you will be responsible for your own learning through a variety of practical activities and integrated enquiries 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 upper limb, including its role in support, posture and grasp.
02. Apply relevant anatomical principles to describe normal structure and function of body systems within the head and neck, including its role in housing visceral structures, special sense organs and the central nervous system.
03. Apply relevant anatomical principles to describe normal structure and function of the central nervous system, including neural pathways for sensation and movement.
04. Apply observational and communication skills, including the use of 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.
