Anatomy of Limbs and Back - HLTH109

This unit builds on the basic anatomy taught in HLTH108 (Introduction to Anatomy). It focuses on the musculoskeletal anatomy of the upper and lower limbs and back. The unit utilises an integrated approach within which relevant gross and radiological anatomy as well as histology and embryology are investigated in detail. It is clinically oriented and focuses on surface and applied anatomy. The unit includes a significant practical component in which prosected cadavers, models, medical images, surface anatomy and clinical cases are studied. Students are expected to show an appreciation and respect for those who have bequeathed their bodies to science.
