  • Overview

    In this subject, students gain knowledge in the anatomical principles of bones, joints, skeletal muscles, nerves, vessels and skin. These principles will be applied to regional anatomy of the lower limb. Embryological development relevant to an understanding of the gross anatomy will be covered in each region. Lectures will be supported by practical classes, including surface anatomy and examination of appropriate cadaver materials. Emphasis is placed on the application of anatomical principles to correlate structure with function in developing an understanding of the bases of everyday activities and related clinical problems.
