DEVELOPMENTAL AND VISCERAL ANATOMY

HBS3DVA

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject the anatomical principles and terminology of visceral cavities and organs introduced in HBS2ALT will be applied to the detailed study of the anatomy of the thoracic and abdominopelvic cavity. The subject will also include the study of the microscopic structure, embryological development of the visceral systems and the anatomical basis of common clinical anomalies. The concept of integrated function of multiple body systems will be developed in each region.The teaching sessions will include practical classes including cadaver materials, digital resources and surface anatomy. You will be required to work together in small groups to take responsibility for your own learning and understanding of anatomy so that you are able to identify anatomical structure and function on a living body as you would in a clinical or professional context.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

Graduate Capabilities

Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Apply an understanding of embryological development to describe the normal development of the visceral organs of the thoracic and abdominopelvic cavities.
02. Apply relevant anatomical principles to describe normal structure and function of body systems in the abdominopelvic region.
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.
