Course Description & Objectives: 

Taught by clinical anatomists and consultant surgeons, this is intended to help surgical trainees prepare for clinical practice. This course, which takes the specialty context into consideration, will: consolidate the candidate’s core and applied surgical knowledge in anatomy; provide a focused revision of pertinent topics in this area, and; aid the candidate’s aptitude to apply  surgical anatomy (prosections, osteology and surface anatomy) will cover surgical pathology, surgical radiology, and surgical skills and patient safety.

  • To describe the embryology, histology and gross anatomy of the upper and lower     limbs.
  • To utilise the anatomical knowledge in clinical diagnosis and surgical treatment of diseases of limbs.
  • To describe the applied anatomy of the limbs.


Learning Outcomes: 

Use of anatomical knowledge in diagnosis, treatment and report writing (Operation patient  notes or medical reports).At the completion of each extensive section of the course should be able to:

  • Locate anatomical structures, using diagrams and nomenclature.
  • Identify bone types according to their characteristics and radiological image.
  • Distinguish the different classes of joints.
  • Identify muscles, arties, veins lymph vessels and nerves according to their characteristics.
  • Identify the topological location of the most important structures of the given region.
  • Identify the regional muscles in a cadaver and describe in each case the particular innervations and function, as well as the nerves, arteries, veins and lymph vessels.
  • Deduce from the anatomic-functional knowledge acquired how the mechanics of the locomotor apparatus behave in certain types of movements.
  • Deduce from the anatomic-functional knowledge acquired the possible alterations that may be caused by injuries to the different structures of the locomotor apparatus.
  • Recognize palpable bone landmarks of the body.
  • Identify the muscles masses of the body by palpations.
  • Examine the vascular and nerve pathways and the reflexes of different body regions.
  • Know how to assess the degree of mobility of different body regions.
