The general purpose of the course Anatomy is to introduce students to the concepts of human anatomy, specifically the human musculoskeletal system.
Students will be
- acquainted with anatomical terminology,
- introduced to the major components constituting the musculoskeletal system,
- introduced to imaging techniques for measuring the proportions of the human body (anthropometry) and the anatomy (morphometry)
On successful completion of the course, students:
- Will be able to apply correct anatomical terminology when describing the musculoskeletal elements of the human body.
- Will be able to apply the knowledge gained in this course to describe functional anatomy of the human musculoskeletal system.
- Will be able to apply musculoskeletal ultrasound to identify relevant structures of the musculoskeletal system.
- Understand 3D anthropometry standard and application areas
- Has insight into the construction and function of muscle and bone tissues
- Can name the determinants of the length-force characteristics of a muscle.
- Can distinguish difference in muscle morphology and understand how these relate to the length-force characteristics of a muscle.
- Understand adaptation processes of muscle and bone tissue
- Understand how adaptations change the morphology of a muscle and understand the consequences of these adaptation to the length-force characteristics of a muscle.
The course will comprise 7 lectures and 3 practicals:
- 2 Lectures on teaching basic knowledge and understanding of the human musculoskeletal anatomy
- 3 Lectures on functional anatomy and adaptations processes
- 1 Lecture on 3D anthropometry
- 1 Lecture on 2D and 3D ultrasound
- Introduction into ultrasound
- Cadaver dissection and ultrasound – practical in which students perform ultrasound measurements on cadaver tissues that will subsequently be verified using dissection.
- Ultrasound assignment \
Workload & credits
The course consists of 3 ECTS, which equals a load of 84 study hours. These hours could be divided over the course programme as follows:
||7x2 = 14
||7x2 = 14
|3D anthropometry Assignment
Examination and grading
Examination and grading of this course will be based on a knowledge assessment and 2 assessments:
|3D Antropometry Assessment
The knowledge assessment will cover lecture sheets and self-study material, and will consist of multiple choice questions and some short-answer essay questions.
