Thorax: Structure and Function

The Thorax: Structure and Function course provides students with functional knowledge of the structure of the thorax region that will enable further understanding of organ-system courses in Phase 2. The course will also introduce the concept of “living anatomy of the thorax” as seen on conventional medical imaging and on living human body. There will be a focus on some normal mechanisms involved in cardiovascular and respiratory functions as well. In addition, students will be able to develop an attitude of teamwork and self-directed learning through their engagement with the teaching methodology in the course.
