BM1002 - Anatomy: Principles and Systems
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Public Health, Medical & Vet Sciences
This subject begins by outlining the principles involved in the study of the mammalian
(including human) body at the cellular, tissue and system level. This will include
an introduction to early human development (embryology) that will lead into the study
of a range of body systems including the urinary, reproductive, respiratory, digestive
and cardiovascular systems. Each body system will be investigated at the microscopic
and macroscopic level using a combination of human cadaveric material (prosections),
other mammalian species (including some dissections), models, and microscopes. Clinical,
functional and research based case studies will be introduced to highlight the varied
use of anatomy in biomedical science.
- Use anatomical terminology to describe cells, tissues, organs and the whole organism;
- Describe the microscopic structure of cells, tissues and organ systems;
- Describe crucial events in embryological development of the organ systems studied
- Relate structure to function;
- Compare and contrast the reproductive, respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive and
urinary systems of vertebrates (human and animal).
