Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Evaluate the role of musculosketal structure and function in the upper /lower limb vertebral column and thoracic cage and skull
LO2 Predict the actions of a muscle on the basis of its origin and insertion. Identify and locate the muscles that form the upper limb, lower limb, trunk and head and describe their innervations and actions.
LO3 Compare and contrast structural and developmental properties of tissues and organs. Outline growth mechanisms, role of bone remodelling
LO4 differentiate anatomical variations and compare them with pathological changes in anatomical structures.
LO5 Name some common disorders and diseases of cartilage, bone, nerve, muscle, cardiovascular system, skin, immune system, respiratory system, digestive system, liver, spleen, pancreas, endocrine and exocrine glands, urinary system, special senses and reproductive systems.
