QUT Gardens Point 2 George Street Brisbane QLD 4001
Each standard module consists of a two-and-a-half-hour class each week for three weeks, 6pm-8.30pm on the specified dates.
The optional Imaging Anatomy classes run as an additional one-hour laboratory class following each standard class, 8.30pm-9.30pm.
Registrations for the thorax module have now closed.
Registrations for the Neuroanatomy module have closed.
Secondary students must attend an introductory session on Wednesday 4 March, 6pm-8pm, at QUT Gardens Point.
Imaging Anatomy modules (optional) taken in conjunction with the relevant standard module:
Secondary Student Introductory Session (mandatory for secondary students prior to first module):
For more information about course content or assessment, contact the Course Coordinator, Laura Gregory.
For all registration or payments queries, contact the Office of Continuing Professional Education.
On completion of the course you will be able to:
You may choose to register for any or all of the modules.
The Imaging Anatomy module is highly recommended for Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) examination.
You must demonstrate a minimum competency of 60% in both the theoretical and practical components of this course in order to achieve a passing grade.
If you achieve an overall score of:
2.5 hour class each week for three weeks.
Imaging anatomy modules run as an additional 1-hour laboratory class following each standard module class.
Learning will be structured with:
You will be provided with an online learning guide with learning outcomes for each module and objectives for each class. This will be structured as an activity workbook that contains specific exercises and questions for you to complete each week.
You will be provided access to the QUT library and a course Blackboard site will be set up for communication and delivery of online resources. Online resources will include formative weekly quizzes, vodcasts of key principles and pathology case-study notes, as well as recordings of the weekly demonstrations on cadavers.
Resources will be provided digitally as well as in the lab. The discussion board will be utilised for your general questions. Weekly attendance is an expectation in this course (90% attendance required).
You will explore the construction of the thoracic wall and the organisation of its contents into the mediastinal and pleural compartments.
The anatomy of the ribcage, thoracic diaphragm, lungs and bronchotracheal tree will be examined to understand their function in respiration.
The anatomy of the heart and its great vessels will be explored to understand the location of the heart within the thorax and how blood is distributed around the body via the cardiovascular system.
Relationships between mediastinal structures will also be examined such as the course of the oesophagus, thoracic duct and descending aorta, and the lymphatic drainage of the thorax.
You will engage in weekly demonstrations of human cadaveric, skeletal and pathological material workshops led by experienced anatomists.
You will explore the complex anatomical and functional relationships of the organs of the abdomen and pelvis including those of the digestive, urinary, endocrine, lymphatic, cardiovascular and reproductive systems.
You will examine the construction of the abdominal wall and pelvic floor, and the organisation of the retroperitoneum (largely kidneys, suprarenal glands, pancreas, duodenum, inferior vena cava and abdominal aorta), supracolic (liver, spleen and stomach) and infracolic (jejunum, ileum, large intestine) compartments.
The organs of the male and female pelvic cavity will also be covered including the urinary bladder, uterus, uterine tubes, ovaries, prostate gland, ductus deferens and seminal vesicles. The construction and contents of the inguinal canal, the lymphatic drainage of the abdomen and pelvis, and the autonomic innervation of visceral organs will be explored.
You will engage in weekly demonstrations of human cadaveric, skeletal and pathological material workshops led by experienced Anatomists.
You will explore the construction of the central nervous system through a deep examination of the functional mapping of the brain and spinal cord in the human body. The supportive structures of the central nervous system including the meninges, cerebrospinal fluid and cranium will complement your studies.
You will build an understanding of the organisation of the brain through engagement in human cadaveric material and sectional anatomy approaches of the head. The relationship between the spinal cord and peripheral nervous system will also be examined. It is highly recommended to enrol in the accompanying imaging anatomy module to facilitate your ability to identify anatomical structures of the head in computerised tomography scans and magnetic resonance imaging.
You will explore the construction of the pelvic girdle and bones of the lower limb in the human body in providing support for the weight of the body with minimal energy expenditure whilst accommodating locomotion.
Organisation of muscle compartments and neurovascular bundles will be examined to understand how movement is produced and controlled by the nervous system. In particular the innervation of the lower limb by the lumbar and sacral plexuses will be deconstructed through close examination of neural branching.
Osteology, arthrology, myology, neurology and angiology will be covered from a regional and surface anatomy approach of the pelvis, thigh, knee, leg and foot. You will engage in weekly demonstrations of human cadaveric, skeletal and pathological material workshops led by experienced anatomists.
You will explore the construction of the pectoral girdle and bones of the upper limb in the human body in enabling extensive range of motion and spatial freedom.
Organisation of muscle compartments and neurovascular bundles will be examined to understand how movement is produced and controlled by the nervous system. In particular you will deconstruct the innervation of the upper limb by the brachial plexus through close examination of neural branching.
Osteology, arthrology, myology, neurology and angiology will be covered from a regional and surface anatomy approach of the axilla, brachium, antebrachium and hand.
These modules complement your study in each module by advancing your anatomical skills in image interpretation.
To enrol in imaging anatomy modules, you must enrol in the corresponding standard module.
Plain and contrast radiography, computerised tomography and magnetic resonance imaging modalities will be utilised.
Through alignment with specific modules you will encounter topics such as plain radiographic examination of the skeleton, arteriography of the coronary arteries or internal carotid arteries, urography, contrast studies of the digestive system through barium meal and enema, magnetic resonance imaging of the brain or knee joint, and computerised tomography of the thorax or abdomen with contrast (arteriography or urography).
