This course is focused on the body's structure. The course is organized according to six major body regions: lower limb and back; upper limb; thorax; abdomen; pelvis; and head and neck. Lectures, tutorials, and computer aided instruction will be given throughout the course. Students will work with prosections in the anatomy laboratory. Each student is expected to learn anatomical terminology as well as three-dimensional and radiological anatomy. Throughout the course students will be challenged to relate the anatomy to the solution of clinical problems. The latter is an integral part of the anatomy curriculum. Students will be evaluated by a series of written and laboratory practical examinations.
