    This course is appropriate for postgraduate students, including pre-medical and pre-allied health students, seeking to gain a better appreciation of the anatomical/ functional mechanisms of the human body. Students are needed to attend daily clinical lectures, including practical sessions of cadaver dissections of the entire body, except head and neck. In addition, imaging techniques including CT scans, MRI, and X-ray radiography are employed to developing in students a physician's perspective of the structure of the human body. The goal of this course is to train students with a better understanding of the human body in terms of health and disease. The course encompasses student presentations, discussion groups, online research sessions, demonstrations with models, in addition to lectures and dissection.
