Module code:ANAT2050(Add to my personalised list)
Title:Human Anatomy and Embryology
Credit value:1
Division:Division of Biosciences
Module organiser:Professor Susan Evans
Organiser's location:Anatomy Building
Organiser's email:s.e.evans@ucl.ac.uk
Available for students in Year(s):2,3,
Module prerequisites:The module is open to interested Human Sciences and Biomedical Sciences students who have passed ANAT1003 and who have obtained an overall Year 1 average of at least 60%. However, module numbers are capped and if there are more applications than places, then Year 1 class rank (average of best three modules) will be used as the selection criterion. These criteria do not apply to the half unit options ANAT2051 and ANAT2052.  
Module outline:A module of human anatomy, histology and embryology that covers the structure and development of the cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive and urinogenital systems (term 1), and the head and neck, vertebral column and limbs (term 2). Clinical and comparative aspects are introduced as appropriate so as to draw out the relationship between structure and function. Lectures are supplemented by practical demonstration sessions in the Dissecting Room. It is also possible to take either the first half of the module (Term 1: Thorax, abdomen, pelvis) as ANAT2051 (0.5 unit) or the second half of the module (Term 2: head and neck, back, limbs) as ANAT2052 (0.5 unit). Note that the half unit options are lecture only (no practicals) and it is NOT possible to take both half units within a single academic year. Year 3 students may take the half unit options. 
Module aims: 1) To provide a detailed overview of the structure and embryonic development of the human body. 2) To provide a foundation from which to develop an understanding of clinical problems relating to human anatomy and development. 3) To provide a strong anatomical foundation from which to explore issues relating to developmental biology and evolutionary morphology.  
Module objectives:Student objectives to be achieved by the end of the module: To achieve a familiarity with the terminology of human anatomy and embryology. To achieve a strong foundation knowledge of anatomy and development. To understand the basis of common clinical problems relating to human structure and development. Description of the teaching method and number of contact hours: Teaching will be by lectures, supplemented by a number of dissecting room demonstration sessions using human material. These practical sessions double as tutorials, providing students with an opportunity to discuss any problems they are having with the course content. Note that lectures on this course are NOT lecturecast. Statement of any prerequisites: The course is open to interested Human Sciences and Biomedical Sciences students who have passed ANAT1003 and have a first year overall average mark of at least 60%. If there are more applicants than places, we will used Year 1 class rank (average of best three modules) as the selection criterion. These criteria do not apply to the half unit options.
