Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes
01. Independently source, assimilate and appraise basic anatomical principles relating to head and neck anatomy.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Assessment will be via a team report.
