Further develops the concepts of Functional Anatomy of the Lower Limbs and Foot and Ankle. Students will learn anatomical terminology and knowledge of the gross anatomy of the lower limb and foot and ankle components of the musculoskeletal system.
Topic 1: Anatomy of the human nail
Topic 2: The foot
- The forefoot
- The midfoot
- The rearfoot
Topic 3:The ankle
- Soft tissue landmarks
- Structure and function of the ankle
Topic 4: The lower leg
- Musculoskeletal anatomy
- Vascular systems
- Neurological systems
- Angiosomes, angiotomes and venosomes
Topic 5: Abnormal anatomy
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
