Module MSE-2013:
Clinical Anatomy

Module Facts

Run by School of Medical Sciences

20 Credits or 10 ECTS Credits

Semester 1 & 2

Organiser: Ms Vivien Shaw

Overall aims and purpose

This module aims to give the student a good knowledge of normal human anatomy. Students will be able to use their anatomical knowledge of the structure of the body to explain function. Students will be able to build on the knowledge gained in year 1 (MSE-1021 Human Physiology & Anatomy) with an emphasis on demonstrating the ability to integrate anatomy with the information on physiology and therapeutics (MSE-1010), and the causes of disease.

Course content

All regions of the body will be covered: Upper and lower limbs, thorax, abdomen, back and spine, head and neck. Some common diseases and applications of anatomical knowledge will be discussed.
