- In this unit students gain a detailed understanding of the development and structure of the systemic and regional anatomy of the body, the axial and appendicular skeleton while becoming familiar with anatomical terminology. This unit introduces the application of anatomical principles in the theoretical and practical concepts of these areas of functional anatomy, focusing specifically on the anatomy and skin of the foot and lower limb. Students will also be introduced to clinical assessment of anatomical structures and relevant medical imaging techniques used clinically to assess these structures. Students will develop an understanding of normal skin anatomy and function as well as to become familiar with common pathologies, pathophysiology, assessment, diagnosis and management of these common dermatological conditions of the foot, including inter and intraprofessional communication and appropriate referrals. Students will be responsible for their own learning through a variety of online and practical learning activities such as lectures, laboratories, workshops online materials, journal articles, reference texts and practical learning events which will be used to deliver the content of this unit.
