Syllabus:

The Applied Anatomy of the Thorax and Abdomen course aims to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the anatomical aspects that form the basis of common surgical approaches and procedures in the thorax and abdomen. It employs dissection of the human body as a core activity. It involves the study of the thorax, including the thoracic wall, mediastinum, heart and coronary vessels, trachea, lungs and pleura; and the abdomen including abdominal wall, peritoneum, liver, pancreas, gastrointestinal tract, urinary system, male and female reproductive organs, nerves and blood vessels. Clinical scenarios, for example, appendicitis, cholecystectomy, peptic ulcer, coronary bypass, pericardiocentesis, central venous line insertion, vagotomy, ligation of uterine tube, hysterectomy, vasectomy and inguinal herniorraphy will be used to emphasise the applied anatomy of thorax and abdomen.
