Anatomy

Faculty

Assoc. Prof. Kostis Gyftopoulos

Content

Τhe Anatomy course is designed for postgraduate students that participate in the Postgraduate Programme in Medical Physics. The aim of the course is to provide an overview of the Human Anatomy. An introductory course is focused in the basis of human Anatomy, from the cellular level to the formation of tissues and organs. The rest of the course is organized in tutorials that analyze the essentials in Anatomy of the main systems of the body (Systemic Anatomy). 

Objectives

The educational aim of the course is to provide the non-medical, postgraduate student with the basic knowledge of human Anatomy, necessary for the future application of medical physics in clinical practice. In detail, the aims of the course include basic knowledge in the following topics:

  • Cellular structure- tissues and organs- distribution throughout the human body and principles of function.
  • Basic knowledge of the musculoskeletal system.
  • The respiratory system. Airways (upper and lower) -lungs –the respiratory function.
  • The heart and vessels. Chambers and valves of the heart- circulation of blood- types and features of blood and lymph vessels.
  • The gastrointestinal system. Upper and lower GI. Ingestion and digestion mechanisms. GI glands and organs.
  • The nervous system. Basic anatomy of the central and peripheral nervous system.
  • The urinary system. Urine production- storage-voiding. The kidneys-ureters-bladder and urethra.The genital system. Basic anatomic similarities and differences between sexes. The reproduction. Accessory glands of the genital system (male & female).
