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.
