Unit description Unit description
This is the first of two on line units that build upon the basic anatomy taught in undergraduate medical programs. The gross anatomy of the human body is revised with an emphasis on clinically oriented and applied anatomy through full body dissection. Discussion of relevant embryology is also included. The unit is delivered via the university iLearn platform and activities are set for students to complete, with follow up quizzes that allow formative self assessment. Topic areas covered include; the anatomy of the head and neck, shoulder and arm, hip and thigh, ankle and foot. Anatomy 1 is designed to prepare students for the level of anatomical knowledge required for the intensive whole body dissection unit Anatomy 3.

Important Academic Dates

Learning Outcomes

  1. Describe the anatomical components of the back, upper limbs, lower limbs, head and neck and their nerve and blood supply.
  2. Apply your knowledge of the anatomy of the back, upper and lower limbs, head and neck to surface anatomy and medical images
  3. Discuss the structure and function of the joints of the back, upper and lower limbs, head and neck to movement and stability
  4. Apply your anatomical knowledge of the back, upper and lower limbs, head and neck to discuss diagnostics and clinical application.
