Through the use of lectures, discussions, dissections and specific tutorials, the course will cover theoretical and practical aspects of applied clinical anatomical knowledge relating to histology, embryology, gross anatomy of various systems, radiology, preserving, embalming, immunocytochemical techniques and the identification of prosections.
Induction for new students recommended - Monday 25 September 2017
Session dates 26 & 27 September 2017, 11 October 2017, 25 October 2017, 8 November 2017, 22 November 2017
Presentation Assessment within 3, 4, 5 January 2018
Can be taken as a stand alone module or within a programme such as the PG Certificate in Applied Clinical Anatomy
- To promote the acquisition of applied anatomical knowledge and skills, and the application of anatomical sciences.
Module Learning Outcomes/Objectives
- Demonstrate a critical awareness of current theories underpinning the knowledge of applied human clinical anatomical structure and function
- Demonstrate an understanding of the use of established human dissecting techniques and other anatomical procedures, with a critical awareness of their strengths and limitations
- Analyse the application of clinical anatomy to professional practice.
- Evaluate critically the current research and advanced scholarship in the field of human anatomical knowledge
The course is aimed at students who have studied some basic anatomy within their first degree, for example: medical doctors, health professionals, graduates in biology, cell biology, biomedical science, sports science, medical illustrators, etc. Candidates should normally have a first or second-class honours degree in a relevant subject and/or recognized professional qualification.
The course will cover theoretical and practical aspects of applied clinical anatomical knowledge relating to histology and gross anatomy of various systems; radiology; embryology, preserving, embalming, immunocytochemical techniques, embryology and identification of prosections. The above areas will be linked to both their functional and clinical relevance
Block sessions: Lecturers, seminars, discussion sessions, tutorials, workshops and dissections. The student is expected to complete at least double the amount of self-directed study.
