Course Description For the first level:

ANT101,102,103,104 (Anatomy I,II,III&IV)
Description:

After a brief introduction to the basic anatomical concepts & terminology, the course intends to help students to acquire information & skills to identify the gross structure of the upper limbs, lower limbs & thorax. Knowledge of the early events of the human embryonic development is taught. Emphasis is given to points of clinical relevance as surface anatomy of heart, lungs & great vessels, effects of nerve injuries, joint mobility, & skeletal injuries. It also aims at training students to interpret normal medical imaging formats (x-rays; Ct scans.etc). It trains students to utilize the acquired knowledge in solving clinical problems. It enhances learning through the use of digital multimedia & interactive e-learning.

Course Contents: 

First Semester (Anatomy I&II Codes 101 & 102):

Introduction to anatomy

1.     Gross anatomy of upper limbs

2.     General embryology

Second Semester (Anatomy III&IV Codes 103 & 104):

1.     Gross anatomy of lower limbs

2.     Gross anatomy of thorax

ANT201,202,203&204 (Anatomy V,VI,VII&VIII)

Course Description For the Second  level:

Description:

It aims at providing information required for identification of the gross structure of certain regions of human body. Emphasis is given particularly to points of clinical relevance. Knowledge of systemic embryology & neuroanatomy is taught. It also aims at training students to interpret normal medical imaging formats (x-rays; Ct scans..etc). It trains students to utilize the acquired knowledge in solving clinical problems. It enhances learning through the use of digital multimedia & interactive e-learning.

Course contents:
