ANATOMY OF THE TRUNK WALL & UPPER LIMB

PAM2TUL

2020

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, you will gain knowledge in the anatomical principles of the regional anatomy of the trunk wall and upper limb. Topic material willbe presented face-to-face and online through lectures, video clips and worksheets, but you will be responsible for your own learning throughsupported practical activities, including the examination of appropriate cadaver materials. Emphasis is placed on the application of anatomicalprinciples to reinforce how structure relates to function.

Special conditions It is a strong recommendation that students attempt PAM2TUL (Trunk Wall & Upper Limb) before attempting PAM2LIN (Lower Limb & Intro to Neuro). Students are required to provide their own laboratory coat when in any cadaver-based teaching laboratory. Students must wear closed-toe shoes in cadaver-based teaching laboratories. Students are required to make a reasonable attempt at any pre-practical activities (either in hard or soft copy) prior to entry to any cadaver-based teaching laboratory.

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 analyse normal development, structure, and function of body systems within the upper limb, including its role in manipulation 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 understanding 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.
