The entire anatomy and development of the head and neck - from bones and joints to the organs of the special senses are the focus of this module. An ability to identify the major structures of the head and neck in an academic and clinical setting on CT scans, MR images, and x-rays will be gained, and students will be able to articulate the pathogenesis and natural history of common clinical disorders.
Lecture material is enhanced by practical sessions, utilising educator-led work stations where prosection, osteology and radiology convey entire anatomy of regions of the head and neck. Students are given an opportunity towards the end of each practical session to dissect.
Demonstrators are on hand to point out clinical scenarios for the specific areas.
The goals for each week were sent ahead of the practical, which allowed for preparation.
