Anatomy of the Upper and Lower Extremities

Yale University via Coursera


This course has two main parts, one for the lower extremity and the other for the upper extremity. We will show how the various systems that supply and organize the limb control its function. There are a set of introductory lectures which will allow more experienced students to refresh their knowledge of the limbs and a guide to those with less experience. These lectures will be followed by detailed dissections of the extremities emphasizing locomotion for the lower extremities and hand positioning and function for the upper extremities.

This course is part 2/4 in the Yale Human Anatomy Specialization.

    Very clear, good refresher for those who have already learned anatomy, but also for less experienced learners, it simplifies the complex structures and considering them as it relates to function. My only complaint is that the transcript has been done with a machine and has alot of inaccuracies which is a problem for non-hearing students and also those whose first language is not English.
