In celebration of our complete female model, the team at Complete Anatomy have collaborated with TV anatomist, Professor Alice Roberts, to create our very first course utilizing female anatomy. This brand-new course is a perfect introduction to students seeking to understand fundamental anatomical concepts related to female anatomy and sexual dimorphic differences between the female and male skeleton.
The course will first focus on the sexual dimorphic differences found between the female and male skeletal system, focusing on the skull and the pelvis. Next is further exploration of the female pelvis, looking at some of the key ligaments and muscles that offer support and function to the pelvic area before looking in-depth at the reproductive viscera and the major arterial supply.
What are the learning outcomes?
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Understand the areas of sexual dimorphisim between female and male skeletal anatomy.
- Identify the key ligaments and muscles that support and give function to the female pelvis.
- Understand the relationships between female pelvic viscera and surrounding endopelvic fascia.
- Describe the blood supply of the female pelvic viscera.
