ANATOMY OF VISCERA AND DISSECTION

PAM3AVD

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, the anatomical principles covered in PAM2LIN, PAM2TUL and PAM3HANwill be applied to the detailed study of the thoracic, abdominal and pelvic anatomy as well as introductory principles of impact biomechanics. Topic materials will be presented face-to-face and online through lectures, video clips and worksheets, but you are responsible for your own learning through supported practical activities including examination of appropriate cadaveric material. You will develop specialised cadaveric dissection skills through a group dissection research project. Emphasis is placed on the application of anatomical principles to reinforce how structure relates to function.

Assessments

Assessment elementCommentsCategoryContributionHurdle% ILO*

Group dissection task and presentation (1,250-words equiv. per student)Students are assessed on their ability to develop an experimental design and methodology and link relevant literature to their experiment by developing a rationale to their study.

N/AN/AN/ANo40 SILO1, SILO2, SILO3, SILO4, SILO5

One 2-hour written examination (2,000-words equivalent)Students are examined on the subject content presented in the lectures and practical classes. Multiple choice and three short answer questions constitute the structure of the final exam.

N/AN/AN/ANo40 SILO1, SILO2

Three practical tests (300-words equiv. per test, total 900-words equivalent)Students are expected to correctly identify flagged structures and answer associated questions. Topics examined are based on the subject content presented in the lectures and practical classes.
