Course objectives
At the end of the course students should be able to:
1. Define topographical regions of the head, neck, thorax, abdomen, and pelvis
2. Identify basic anatomical structures (bones, joints, viscera, vessels, and nerves) in the regions of the head, neck, thorax, abdomen, and pelvis
3. Demonstrate practically particular organs of the head, neck, thorax, abdomen, and pelvis at the human cadaver
4. Create the anatomical prosection of some studied region using specified dissecting procedures
5. Distinguish abnormalities of the prosections.
  • Dissection of the head: parotideomasseteric region, anterior facial region, temporal region, occipitofrontal region, cranial cavity, dissection of the brain, pharynx, parapharyngeal space, soft palate, infratemporal fossa, larynx, nasal cavity, orbit, temporal bone.
  • Dissection of the neck: skin incisions, subcutaneous tissue, infrahyoid muscles, carotid triangle, suprahyoid region, cervical and brachial plexuses, subclavian triangle.
  • Dissection of the thorax: skin incisions, subcutaneous tissue, muscular layer, axillary fossa, intercostal spaces, thoracic cavity, pleura and lungs, pericardium and heart, mediastinum.
  • Dissection of the abdomen: skin incisions, subcutaneous tissue, muscular layer, inguinal region, abdominal cavity, situs viscerum, removal of organs, branches of the abdominal aorta, retroperitoneal space.

Teaching methods
Anatomical dissection of the human body
Assessment methods
Completion of the subject is assessed by the course-unit credit. A precondition for obtaining the course-unit credit is 100% attendance and demonstration of basic knowledge during examination at the close of the practicals. The student who fails the 100% attendance due to an illness (after presentation of a medical certificate) substitutes the course to the full extent during the examination period of the semester. A minimum of 6 out of 10 possible points (grade E) in each examination is required for fulfillment. The results of the examination will be included in the results of the practical part of the final examination in Anatomy. The unsuccessful student will be re-examined at the respective date of the theoretical part of the final examination in Anatomy.
