HEAD, NECK ANATOMY & NEUROANATOMY

PAM3HAN

2020

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, the anatomical principles covered in HBS2HAA (PAM2LIN)/HBS2HAB (PAM2TUL) will be applied to the detailed study of head, neckĀ and neuroanatomy. Topic materials will be presented face to face and online lectures, videoclips and worksheets, but students will be responsible for
their own learning through supported practical activities, including examination of appropriate cadaver materials. Emphasis is placed on theĀ 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

01. Independently source, assimilate and appraise basic anatomical principles relating to head and neck anatomy.

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.

02. Independently source, assimilate and appraise basic anatomical principles relating to neuroanatomy. Analyse the neural pathways and develop the basic clinical skills to understand the neurological disorders.

Activities:
Students will attend lectures and practicals then independently study texts and subject manual objectives. Assessment will be via practical tests, team report and anend-of-semester exam.

03. Use available anatomical resources to competently identify a given anatomical structure and assess it in a clinical context. Anatomical structures will be presented either as an image or in situ, and evaluate its orientation and operation within the body.

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 flag tests.

04. Work collaboratively to critically analyse clinical based scenarios.

Activities:
Assessment will be via a team report.
