1. Three 1-hour lectures per week, weeks 1-13.
2. One 1-hour tutorial per week, weeks 2-13 (except where indicated) in university classrooms; discussions will be carried; histology slides, anatomy models and flow charts will be used.
3. One 2-hours laboratory practical per week 1-13 (except where indicated) in the anatomy laboratories; histology slides and anatomy models will be used.
Students must attend the practical classes (tutorials and lab practicals) in which they enrolled. They may not exchange their class time. In special circumstances, students may apply (with the appropriate documentation) in writing to the unit convener, for requests regarding changes. These requests are to be submitted to the unit convenor.
