Advanced functional anatomy of the musculoskeletal system.
ANAT 250 builds on the basics of musculoskeletal anatomy to explore a more advanced understanding of the musculoskeletal system, with a focus on lower and upper limbs, and the axial skeleton. This knowledge forms a basis for understanding the biomechanics of normal human movement and examples of movement in sport are used to integrate structure and function of the musculoskeletal system.

- Learning Outcomes
- By the end of ANAT 250 you will have:
- An understanding of anatomical terminology
- Detailed knowledge of the bones, joints and associated tissues of the human body
- An understanding of muscles of the lower limb, upper limb and axial skeleton, and movements produced by these muscles at each joint
- Knowledge of key neurological and vascular structures in the limbs and axis of the human body
- Demonstrated the ability to integrate the structure and function of the musculoskeletal system as a basis for understanding biomechanics and human movement
