The objectives for this subject are to gain an understanding of the structure, function and relationships of bone, muscle, soft tissues and joints, the pathologic processes affecting these and the processes of repair and healing. The subject will comprise the macroscopic and microscopic appearance of skin, fascia and skeletal muscle, bone, synovial and fibrous joints, nerves and vessels and the regional, radiological, and applied anatomy of the back, upper limb, abdomen, pelvis, and lower limb. The exposure of anatomical structures and regions and the appearance of normal structures on radiographs will be studied, and cross-sections of the body at important levels will be obtained via dissection. The structure, function and metabolism of muscle and soft tissues at anatomical, cellular and molecular levels and the pathological processes that may impair these tissues and the neuromuscular control mechanism of muscle action will be incorporated. The pharmacology of autacoids, anti-inflammatory drugs and immunosuppressant drugs will be integrated.
Students are expected to develop:
Three quizzes up to one hour in duration during the semester (30%); end-of-semester written examinations up to six hours (50%); and a practical examination (20%).
