Medical Gross Anatomy is the study of the body's structure. The course is organized according to the major body regions: back and upper limb; thorax and abdomen; pelvis and lower limb; and head and neck. Laboratory dissections will be utilized throughout the entire course. Supplemental lectures and tutorials will also be given. The student is expected to learn anatomical terminology, three-dimensional and radiological anatomy. Throughout the course students will be challenged to relate the anatomy to solving clinical problems. The latter is an integral part of the anatomy curriculum. Students will be evaluated by a series of four written examinations and four laboratory practical exams.
