Module outline:ANAT1003 is an introductory module in human anatomy and developmental biology (embryology). The module will cover topographical anatomy and development of the nervous system, cardiovascular system, respiratory system, digestive system, musculoskeletal system, urogenital system, and limbs. It will also provide an understanding of the basic principles of embryonic development and the formation of the major organs. The module will be taught by lectures and a series of seminars covering more specialised topics. A visit to the UCL Anatomy Laboratory (Dissecting Room) is included in the module, but is not compulsory. 
Module aims: ANAT1003 provides an introduction to significant aspects of human anatomy and developmental biology. Its aim is to prepare students for more advanced modules in anatomy and developmental biology that they may wish to pursue in 2nd year, such as ANAT2050 (Human Anatomy and Embryology) and BIOL2010 (The Biology of Development).  
Module objectives:At the end of the module, students are expected to be able to describe and compare the principal structures of major human organs and systems, discuss the anatomical basis of the circulation and the nervous system, and discuss the anatomical basis for actions such as breathing and digestion. Students will also be expected to be familiar with the rudiments of embryonic development and the formation of the major organ systems.
