We expect that a student who completes this subject will comprehend the terminology of human topographic anatomy as it relates to the head and neck, thorax, abdomen and pelvis; the principles of viscera and visceral systems; the use of dissecting instruments to expose the detailed regional anatomy of each area including the walls and contents of the thorax, abdomen and pelvis; applied and clinical anatomy; the appearance of normal anatomical structures via modern imaging techniques.
By the end of this subject, students should:
- comprehend the organisation of body cavities; the principles of viscera and visceral systems; the anatomy of the autonomic nervous system and cranial nerves that supply viscera; the detailed visceral anatomy of the head and neck, thorax, abdomen and pelvis; radiological anatomy of the thorax, abdomen and pelvis; applied and clinical anatomy of the body's visceral systems;
- develop observational and organisational skills to identify and interpret exposed anatomical structures and regions of the head and neck, thorax, abdomen and pelvis; communication skills (written and oral) to describe the normal structure of the human body; the use of dissecting instruments to expose visceral systems in the cadaver; the incidence of important anatomical variants and their clinical significance; and
- appreciate the important clinical applications relevant to body regions and the approaches to imaging the thorax, abdomen and pelvis.
- Capacity for independent study, rational enquiry and self-directed learning.
- Ability to analyse problems.
- Oral and written communication skills.
- Time management skills.
- Teamwork in interpretation and analysis of new information.
