Provides an introduction to the functional anatomy of the human body with emphasis on the musculoskeletal system, peripheral vasculature and major nerve trunks. This course contributes to the broad biomedical science foundation required for health graduates. In addition, it provides a firm basis for later courses in organ-based anatomy.
