By the end of this subject, students should:
- comprehend the terminology of topographic anatomy; the principles of embryological development and the derivatives of the primary germ layers; the principles related to each of the following types of anatomical structure: skin, fascia and skeletal muscles, bones and joints, vessels, nerves and viscera; the organisation of the body into regions and the anatomy of the major organ systems.
- develop observational and organisational skills to identify and interpret exposed anatomical structures and regions; communication skills (written and oral) to describe the normal structure of the human body; and
- appreciate the important clinical applications relevant to the body regions and the approaches to imaging the human body
Intended learning outcomes
We expect that a student who completes this subjects should comprehend the terminology of human topographic and developmental anatomy; the principles relating to each type of anatomical structure (skin, fascia and skeletal muscle, bones and joints, vessels and nerves, visceral structures); the essential factual information regarding the specific anatomical structures forming the body's major organ systems (musculoskeletal, nervous, cardiorespiratory, digestive, genitourinary); the boundaries and contents of clinically important regions; the appearance of normal anatomical structures via modern imaging techniques.
- Capacity for independent study, rational enquiry and self-directed learning
- Ability to analyse problems
- Oral and written communication skills
- Time management skills
