Module code:ANAT0001 (Add to my personalised list)
Title:Introduction to Anatomy and Development
Credit value:15
Division:Division of Biosciences
Module organiser (provisional):Professor Leslie Dale
Organiser's location:Anatomy Building
Available for students in Year(s):1
Module prerequisites:Only available to first year students. A core module for 1st year Biomedical Sciences and 1st year Human Sciences students. 
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, head and face, 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 research topics.  
Module aims:ANAT0001 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 ANAT0004 (Human Anatomy and Embryology) and BIOL0013 (The Biology of Development).  
Module objectives:At the end of the module, students are expected to be able to describe 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.  
Key skills provided by module:Students will acquire a basic understanding of human anatomy and embryology, and will develop independent learning and problem solving skills. Assessment: Developmental Biology CAL Practical (10.00%), Moodle exam 1 (20.00%),Moodle exam 2 (20.00%), Moodle Exam 3 (50%).
