The regional approach is divided into the following 4 Units: Unit #1 Back and Thorax Unit #2 Abdomen, Pelvis and Perineum Unit #3 Neck and Head Unit #4 Upper and Lower Limb 3 Lecture Syllabus The goal of the lecture syllabus was to: Create lecture outlines that are practical and easy to follow during self study and during lecture Provide students with clear expectations of the anatomic content to be mastered Each lecture session of the syllabus begins with a list of Objectives that identi f es anatomic structures and concepts to be mastered. The goal of the objectives list is to help students focus study time on required con- tent instead of guessing what the instructor expects them to memorize and learn.
