Purpose of The Site
Many students studyingAnatomy for the first time experience difficulty learning Surface and Living Anatomy. The aim of this WebSite is to provide access to a Method of Learning based on Behavioural Objectives. Each objective states in unambiguous terms, given certain conditions, what the student has to do to achieve a standard of competence.
There are currently 230 behavioural objectives. Each objective states in clear and unambiguous terms the performance to be demonstrated, the standard to be achieved and the conditions. In addition my new book (Surface and Living Anatomy, available soon from Elsevier publishing)
The web site includes a subset of the objectives (around 100) and does not include the picture gallery.
To achieve a standard of competence, students are required to progress through a series of logical steps or criteria by which anatomical structures are identified by palpation .
These steps are listed with each objective.
The key to success in this step by step Learning Method is knowing where to start, to progress in simple, clear and related steps to reach the desired standard of competence.
This Website gives you an insight into what you can achieve by using Living Anatomy Learning Objectives.
Most of the web site is original work. Where material has been taken from published works, permission has been obtained or is being sought from the original publishers.
