- Provide knowledge of the normal anatomical structure of the human body on both micro- and macroscopic level.
- Provide insight into histological analysis methods and practical skills in light microscopy.
- Strengthen the students' analytical ability - including the ability to diagnose based on tissue.
Expected learning outcome
The learning objectives of the course are that the student demonstrates the ability to:
- Explain the anatomical disciplines and overall concepts of anatomical terminology.
- Understand the principle behind histochemical and immunohistochemical coloring methods.
- Define light and electron microscopy and using a light microscope.
- Describe the structural composition of the skin and explain derivatives of the skin.
- Explain the structure and biomechanical properties of the supportive tissues.
- Explain the principles of the structure, operation and function of muscles and joints.
- Describe the structure and function of the nervous system / cardiovascular system.
- Explain the structure of the respiratory tract.
- Describe the structure of the digestive system and the accessory digestive glands.
- Explain the urinary tract.
- Describe the structure and function of endocrine glands.
