Literally thousands of new words will be taught throughout the course. Success in anatomy comes from knowing the terminology, the three-dimensional visualization of the structure(s) and using that knowledge in solving problems. The discipline of anatomy is usually studied in a dual approach: · Regional approach - description of structures regionally and their relationships to each other (back, thorax, abdomen, pelvis, perineum, neck, head, upper limb, lower limb) · Systemic approach - description of the major systems of the body musculoskeletal, nervous cardiovascular, lymphatic, digestive, respiratory, endocrine, urinary and reproductive The gross anatomy course (ANAT 6010) is organized around a regional approach to anatomy, but time is taken throughout the course to review information from a systemic standpoint because true understanding requires that both approaches be used. The regional approach is divided into the following 4 Units: Unit #1 Back and Thorax Unit #2 Abdomen, Pelvis and Perineum Unit #3 Neck and Head Unit #4 Upper and Lower Limb 2 Lecture Syllabus The goal of the lecture syllabus was to: · Create lecture outlines that are practical and easy to follow during self study and during lecture · Provide students with clear expectations of the anatomic content to be mastered Each lecture session of the syllabus begins with a list of "Objectives" that identifies anatomic structures and concepts to be mastered. The goal of the objectives list is to help students focus study time on required content instead of guessing what the instructor expects them to memorize and learn. Similarly to learning a new language there is a large amount of memorization required. However, the end goal is not in memorizing long lists of terms and verbs but of communicating. Anatomy is much the same. There are long lists of structures and concepts to memorize and learn but that is not the end goal. The end goal is applying the anatomic content to clinical/analytical problems. The syllabus is meant to help serve as a guide in this study process. The syllabus and associated objectives are meant to serve as a focus to study time. In addition, homework exercises are provided to aid students in applying anatomic concepts in clinical situations to assess self-mastery of anatomic knowledge and to prepare for the end-unit examinations. The syllabus does not supplant the required textbooks. The authoritative source for lectures (written exams) is Gray's Anatomy for Students, not the syllabus. The authoritative source for the laboratory practical exam is Gray's Dissection Guide for Human Anatomy, not the syllabus. If you discover format mistakes or inconsistencies between the content of the syllabus and text books, please let us know, constructively, so that we may revise the syllabus for next year. Grading and Testing Cumulative scores for exams, and cadaver autopsy report for a total of 455 possible points. · 4-Midterm lecture exams consist of multiple choice and constructed response questions (50 points each). Hard copies of the written exams will not be returned. · 4-Cadaver practical exams (50 points each). · 4-Dissection area cleanliness and Dissection completeness (5 points each) · 1-Written cadaver autopsy report (35 points . 5 group report and 30 individual report) Medical students: Honors/Pass/Fail; Dental students: Letter grade (A-F) Cheating is unacceptable. Please do not wear baseball caps or other brimmed hats during exams. Exam dates: Unit #1 - Monday September 15th, Unit #2 - Friday October 10th, Unit #3 - Wednesday November 12th and finally Friday November 5. Changing dates of exams is not an option, without prior written approval from the Dean's Office and Course Director. Remediation Approved medical school summer anatomy courses (i.e., University of Louisville in Kentucky or PT gross anatomy course at UofU) Materials Scrubs and/or white laboratory coat, latex gloves, scalpel blades, scissors, forceps/hemostats (2 sets of other dis3 section tools are included for each table). Required texts Drake et al., Gray's Anatomy for Students (2005) Morton et al., Gray's Dissection Guide for Human Anatomy (2007) Atlas: Your choice (recommend Netter's, or Thieme) Dissection Groups 6 medical students are assigned to each cadaver. They are further subdivided into group "A" and group "B". Each group will alternate each laboratory period between cadaver dissection and small group activities in the HSEB (i.e., osteology tutorials, radiology review, practice problem solving etc.). The dissecting group will teach the dissected material to the non-dissecting group. For example, when Group A is dissecting the triangles of the neck in the cadaver lab, Group B will be reviewing the osteology of the head and neck. Group A will be responsible for teaching Group B the anatomy of the triangles of the neck to Group A. Learning Aids The official anatomy website is DIGANAT. The site contains photographic dissections for each session, osteology tutorials, radiographic tutorials, homework questions and other computer assisted instructional aids. · http://library.med.utah.edu/diganat/index.html · username: gross · password: anatomy Bone boxes: A bone box is assigned to each cadaver table (to be shared between groups A and B) Skulls: A skull is assigned to each dissection group (Group A and Group B both are assigned skulls) Health Professions Education Building (HPEB) · Address: 520 Wakara Way, Research Park between the Marriott Hotel and Orthopedic Building · 15 walk from HSEB. The HPEB is shared with the College of Health's Physical and Occupational Therapy programs (good citizenship is therefore obligatory). The building has 3 levels with a mezzanine between levels and 2 and 3. (Level 1 is the bottom level). Each student is given access to the building 7 days a week from 6AM to 11PM. For the students' protection against liability, we advise that more than one student be in the laboratory at a time. The cadaver laboratories are located on Level 2 (middle level). The labs have keypad locks with the code for each door being . 2 and 4 at the same time followed by 3. The student commons area is on Level 3 (top floor). Please feel free to take advantage of the common areas. Changing-Rest rooms are located on all three floors. · Shuttle bus: To see a schedule for shuttles to and from the medical school and cadaver lab please refer to http:www.parking.utah.edu · Parking: Limited parking is available at the HPEB facility. Additional parking is located at 615 on the map on the following page. Individual property managers control all other lots in Research Park. Unauthorized use is subject to private, not University, enforcement. Please do not park in the "Patient Parking" at the bottom of the hill in HPEB. Those spots are reserved for patients with multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's. If student's take their parking spots they are forced to park else where and will be unable get to the rehab room 4 on Level 1 and will miss their session. Thank-you for your consideration in this matter.
