BM1071 - Anatomy and Physiology for Dentists 1
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Medicine & Dentistry
The subject is only available to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Dental Surgery.
This subject will provide an overview of body organisation and introduce important
concepts and principles of anatomy and physiology as relevant for Dental Surgery students.
This includes an introduction to cells and tissues, the nervous system and the function
and relationships of bone, muscle and joints. A detailed study of the gross anatomical
structure and functional anatomy of the upper body will then be undertaken. The anatomy
and physiology of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems together with the musculoskeletal
anatomy of the thorax will be studied. An integrated understanding of the human body
will be achieved with practical sessions, including the study of human cadaveric material,
and functional and clinical case-studies to facilitiate the integration of material
and the correlation of structure to function.
- To gain a detailed understanding of the principles of the musculoskeletal system including
a detailed study of the upper body and thorax;
- To gain a basic understanding of the structure and function of the respiratory and
- To provide a basis for subsequent applied studies requiring a knowledge of human anatomy
- To gain an understanding of overall body structure, organisation and function from
the subcellular to the organ level.
