This unit provides an advanced study of the functional anatomy of the human body through the interrelationship of structure and function. Case-based clinical situations of normal, disease or degeneration are integrated to clarify and give real life reference to normal functioning.Combined teaching of undergraduate and graduate Advanced Functional Anatomy will take place in this unit.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Relate the interrelationship of human anatomical structure and function;

2. Integrate their knowledge of the body systems to contrast normal anatomy with the effects of disease or degeneration;

3. Critically evaluate the implications of these changes;

4. Synthesise and apply this knowledge to real situations;

5. Work independently and with others as part of a group;

6. Communicate their views effectively both verbally and in writing;

7. Support their arguments with recent scientific literature; and

8. Identify, critically analyse, interpret, debate and/or role play issues raised in the unit.
