Postgraduate Course: Basic Human Anatomy 1, Upper and Lower Limb (BIME11001)
|School||School of Biomedical Sciences
||College||College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 11 (Postgraduate)
||Availability||Not available to visiting students
|Summary||Individuals in groups of 4/5 will be expected to dissect a whole human cadaver to the level of that contained in Grants Dissector 15th edition. Specifically, they will be expected to prepare high quality dissections of various regions of the human body and to acquire the knowledge of regional and systematic anatomy sufficient to understand and then explain to others what is shown by each dissection. Each student working alone and collaboratively will produce material which will be assessed in terms of its quality and value for teaching as an aid.
Aims and Objectives:
1. To understand the anatomy of the human body both systematically and regionally.
2. To be able to dissect human cadaveric material to a standard required such that the material can be used to teach undergraduates, postgraduates and professionals.
3. To be able to clearly demonstrate and explain the anatomy as dissected.
