The unit of study covers the requirements of the anatomy syllabi of the primary examinations of the Australian Colleges of Anaesthetists, Intensive Care Medicine and Emergency Medicine. It is focussed on clinical relevance and application. Students will learn anatomy relevant to the professional demands of each college, for example the anatomy relevant to venous access, airways and peripheral neural structures. Anatomical imaging, including ultrasound, CT and MRI is integrated where relevant.
Online lectures and face to face workshops including prosected specimens (3 x separate full days). Students must attend at least one workshop and attendance at all workshops is strongly recommended.
Online quizzes (20%); workshop assessment (30%) i.e. best score out of 3 workshop assessment scores; online exam (50%)
