Module Title:Anatomy 2
Language of Instruction:English
Credits: 10
NFQ Level:6
Module Delivered In 2 programme(s)
Teaching & Learning Strategies: This module will be taught in 3 hours theory and 4 hours of practical per week. Students may access the material via Blackboard in advance of theory and practical classes to facilitate active learning. Lectures will discuss the module content with an emphasis on the clinical application of anatomical knowledge learnt and practiced in practical class. Practical classes will incorporate identification, description, palpation and the functional workings of the relevant anatomical structures of the lower limb, trunk, and neuroanatomy.
Module Aim: To provide the student with an understanding of the anatomical structures of the lower limb, trunk and neuroanatomy.

Module Content & Assessment

Indicative Content
Theory
The anatomy of the lower limb and trunk will be discussed under the following headings; 1. Osteology 2. Athrology 3. Myology 4. Neurology 5. Angiology. An introduction to neuroanatomy and its terminology. The anatomy and function of the brain, and organisation of the nervous system will also be discussed.
Practical
Students will learn to identify, describe and palpate relevant anatomical structures of the lower limb and trunk. Students will also learn how to practically identify and describe the brain and nervous system organisation.
