A gross anatomy course that includes examination of prosected cadavers. Sessions on how to conduct a physical examination of a particular body region are preceded immediately by lectures on the same region.
Course Learning Objectives (CLOs) By the end of this course, each student should be able to: 1. Recognize the bones, joints, arteries, veins, and organs that underlie surface anatomy features. 2. Describe the spatial relationships among the viscera of the head, neck, chest, abdomen, pelvis and perineum and the blood supply, venous and lymphatic drainage, and the autonomic innervation of all the head, neck, thoracic, abdominal, pelvic, and perineal organs and glands. 3. Describe the motor and sensory distribution of the cranial and spinal nerves. 4. Describe the chief actions of the body’s skeletal muscles. 5. Describe where the superficial lymph node groups can be palpated in the head, neck and limbs and which tissues are drained by each group. 6. Recognize major anatomical structures in radiographs of the limbs; radiographs and CT scans of the chest, abdomen and pelvis; and radiographs, CT scans, and MRIs of the head and neck. 7. Identify anatomy related to the performance of a physical exam and clinical procedures. 8. Identify the major features and functions of the external and internal morphology of the adult brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves, including the blood supply, meninges and ventricular system. 9. Recognize the connections between anatomical structures that comprise the sensory and motor systems of the central nervous system (CNS) and peripheral nervous system (PNS). 10. Recognize the fundamentals of neurophysiology as it relates to CNS/PNS anatomy. 11. Interpret PNS and CNS lesions and recognize their etiology.
