Objectives and Content
The aims of the teaching in this course are that the students shall achieve knowledge about how different cell types are organised and histologically build up tissue and organs, and further know the anatomical buildup of organs, organ systems and body parts.
At the end of this course, the students have the following learning outcomes defined in knowledge, skills and general competence:
Knowledge: The students..
- Have knowledge about central macroanatomical and histological terminology (also the latin terminology)
- Have knowledge about cellular and histological structures of tissue
- Know about topographical anatomy of body parts in the syllabus
- Understand normal function and development of disease in man, based on knowledge about buildup and organisation of cells, tissue, organs and organ systems.
Skills: The students..
- Are able to use light microscopy independently to research and identify cells and histological structures in tissue sections
- Are able to identify macroanatomical structures in anatomical models and in fixated, human organs
- Are able to use textbooks and scientific literature to study buildup of cells, tissue, organs and organ systems
General competence: The students..
- Have insight into relevant, ethical issues regarding use of fixated organs in teaching
- Are able to convey central subject matters within anatomy and histology, both in writing and orally
- Are able to exchange views and experiences with others having background within anatomy and histology, and by this can contribute to development of good practice
