Main Learning Outcomes
Students should have an understanding of tissue/cellular organisation in a variety of body locations and how these relate to function. They should be able to:
- explain how cellular and extracellular components combine to form a cohesive structural and function tissue organisation
- describe and discuss a variety of structural formats within the human body.
- explain how variations to the structural formats of body surfaces, tubes and musculoskeletal structural components are modified from a basic format and the functional effects of such structural variations in normal and disease situations.
- use the skills necessary to interpret microscopic slides, anatomical specimens and models and the output from other imaging procedures.
- use the skills necessary to interpret histological and pathological images and use their findings to solve problems.
- use the skills of relating structural information and functional activity.
The course will include lectures on the features of a variety of human tissues - in states of normality and abnormality.
Further lectures will examine the way that these tissues change during disease states and injury.
Practicals will offer demonstrations of traditional and modern methods of analysing structure/appearance of human tissues with practical experience of the analysis of data produced by such methodologies.
Students will also undertake several problem-based learning sessions where they will have to use the knowledge they learn to interpret histological and pathological images and data.
