Exploring Anatomy: the Human Abdomen

University of Leeds via FutureLearn

Overview

##

You will be introduced to the human abdomen and its many complex structures through stimulating discussions on common surgical scenarios and current research. Each week, we will focus on a specific area of the abdomen; starting at the anterior abdominal wall and be able to detail the anatomy of numerous organs including the stomach and liver. Specialists will come together to compare and discuss contrasting surgical techniques. This will help you to apply your understanding of basic anatomy to common clinical scenarios and introduce you to research being undertaken at the University of Leeds.

This course is for anyone that is interested in the human body and specifically the inner workings of the abdomen. We will assume a very basic level of anatomical knowledge. By completing all aspects of the course you will have achieved 14 hours of CPD time.

    Gave a very thorough grounding to the subject. There was a lot of detail which was new to myself and this contributed to making the course a lot more difficult for me to understand. I am glad to have worked on the course and will come back again to it...

    I love Jame's coverage of the topics - I am a high school A&P teacher and this is how I started my remote learning with my A&P students with the covid-19 crisis. They love it. They can review the videos as many times as they need, the little check what you know segments are very helpful, and the career chats with surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, are by far our favorite parts! The review for us of planes, medical terms, directional and regional terms have also been a bonus. Sadly, we cannot afford the subscriptions so we do not have access to the tests, but I created my own to go along with the coursework for my students. Kudos to the professor and to the folks at future learn! Amazing resource in so many topics!

    James Abdullah Smith completed this course, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.

    James is an excellent educator. His videos and explanations are clear and concise. It is very easy to follow along with the course. The content discussed is informative and exceptionally well delivered so that any person of any expertise in the field, or none at all, can easily understand. The clinical application sections at the end of each week put the week in context and enhance the learning further. As a medical school applicant it will hopefully help my application and first experiences of anatomy in medical school. Strongly recommend. Put down whatever you are doing now and sign up. Yes, you. The one reading this review. Do it.

    I think I have rated this course already elsewhere but I don't mind repeating that it is an excellent course although there is a lot to take in and remember. I could remember a lot of school biology but I think anyone with no prior knowledge would find it very challenging because it is so packed. I personally couldn't manage the extra advanced material but by the look of other learners there would have been plenty of people who could. The visuals in this course were brilliant and I think an on-line course like this where you can go back and watch the videos again is better than a live lecture in a lecture theatre. Thank you James and team

    I am a retired and ageing chemical engineer engineer becoming ever more conscious of the frailty of my body. As such I was interested to understand the form of my gut, how it works and what holds it together. The course is excellent and very well delivered. The abdomen is a most impressive example of process engineering!

    So far this is the best organised FutureLearn course that I have studied, including the models, diagrams and pictures. In particular the lecturer’s presentation language was crystal clear, logical and step-by-step, making complex medical knowledge easy to understand.

    Dr James Pickering is without doubt THE BEST lecturer I have ever encountered either in class or online. His explanations are very clear. I just love the way he conducts the classes.
