HEAD, NECK ANATOMY & NEUROANATOMY

PAM3HAN

2021

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, neck 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 the 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

Graduate Capabilities

Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Independently source, assimilate and appraise basic anatomical principles relating to head and neck anatomy.
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.
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.
04. Work collaboratively to critically analyse clinical based scenarios.
