Course Description & Objectives: 

The course is to help students to relate to the study of gross anatomy of the Head and Neck, Emryology of the area, Histology of Internal Ear, Eye Ball, Cerebral and cerebellar cortices and Neuroanatomy. The aim is that the students acquire relevant information of direct clinical bearing without unnecessary details of pure academic importance. Further it is desired to foster habits and attitudes of independent learning and among the students, hoping that they develop the ability to keep themselves abreast with least development in the fields of their interest during the subsequent years of professional practice.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Objectives:

  • To utilise the knowledge of the special relationship of organs in chest, abdomen, pelvis and perineum to do surgical clinical diagnosis, treatment and research.
  • To describe the developmental, macroscopic and microscopic anatomy of head and neck.
  • To be able to utilise the anatomical knowledge in clinical diagnosis and surgical and management of head and neck disease, and for research.


Learning Outcomes: 

Students are expected by the end of the course to be able to:

  • Comprehend the anatomical terms and use them correctly.
  • Recognize anatomical structures correctly and comprehend the topographic anatomy of the head and neck region by actual dissection, prosection or by museum study.
  • apply the knowledge and skill in solving clinical problems and interpret anatomical relationships to common clinical conditions
  • Comprehend radiographs of head and neck of priority neuro surgical conditions.
  • Comprehend CT scan and cross sections of head and neck.
  • Understand the histological structure of eye ball with particular emphasis on retina and describe membranous labyrinth of the internal ear
  • Understand the development of face, tongue, eye, ear and other derivative pharyygeal arches, pouches and clefts and the congenital abnormalities relating to them.
