Physiological process and anatomical structure will be studied for the cardiovascular and respiratory systems together with the musculoskeletal anatomy of the thorax. 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 facilitate the integration of material and the correlation of structure to function.
