10 Credits AUTUMN

Aims/Description: This practical unit introduces UGL2 students to the anatomy of the human body. Students will dissect and study the systems of the human body in small groups as well as view pre-dissected specimens and models. The module will allow students to develop their anatomical knowledge and enterprise skills to complete a coursework project. The module is designed to enable students to acquire a solid foundation and understanding of the anatomy of the human body including the thorax, abdomen, pelvis and upper limb. The practical sessions will be supported by a series of briefing lectures and independent/guided learning activities. Assessment will be by one summative exam.
