AT8302 - Surgical Anatomy of the Trunk and Lower Limbs
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Medicine & Dentistry
Available to Graduate Diploma of Surgical Anatomy students, or by permission of the
This subject is the second of two subjects that form the Graduate Diploma in Surgical
Anatomy. The Graduate Diploma in Surgical Anatomy is a course providing instruction
in clinically relevant anatomy to Australian medical and dental graduates and AHPRA
registered health practitioners or those with an equivalent overseas qualification.
As part of this subject students will undertake studies in histology, embryology and
advanced topographical anatomy of the lower limb, thorax, abdomen and pelvis and will
include compulsory residential cadaveric dissection workshops.
- Apply and adapt advanced anatomical knowledge and technical skills to structural identification
and regional cadaveric dissection of the lower limb, thorax, abdomen and pelvis;
- Review, consolidate and synthesise knowledge of anatomical development (embryology),
tissue structure (histology), and functional systematic structure (topographical anatomy)
to identify anatomical variants and analyse the clinical and surgical implications
of such variants of the lower limb, thorax, abdomen and pelvis;
- Demonstrate effective and concise oral and written communication skills;
- Critically analyse scientific research papers;
- Critically interpret and evaluate how normal structure and anatomical variation of
structure relate to normal and abnormal function of the lower limb, thorax, abdomen
- Relate advanced anatomical knowledge of the lower limb, thorax, abdomen and pelvis
to the development of pathology, functional complications and management options.
