AHL 849 - Surgical Anatomy and Pathology I

4.8 Continuing Education Units (CEU). This course is not for Credit(s).

This course is designed to enable the student to develop a deeper understanding of human anatomy and the pathologic conditions that might require surgical intervention. This course is the first in a two part series. The student will build on previous knowledge in order to understand the relationships of anatomical structures as they would be identified during surgical procedures. Topics to be covered include a review of anatomy and physiology of specific structures, classification and treatment of tumors, pathologic conditions requiring surgical intervention, and the application of anatomical relationships to surgical practice. 


Course Objectives:

1. recall anatomy and physiology within the following structures of the human body: integumentary, musculoskeletal, joints, nervous, urinary, and reproductive;
2. recall the basic organizational structures of the human body, including body planes, general organization, and terms of reference;
3. discuss the causes and manifestations of the disease process using appropriate terminology;
4. discuss hemodynamic disorders, tumor classification and treatment, and inflammation and infection;
5. identify surgically treatable disorders and the tests used to diagnose them; and
6. apply critical thinking skills to the anatomy and pathology topics covered as related to surgical practice.
