Up until the 20th century, our understanding of human anatomy came largely from dissection. Beginning with a brief history of anatomy, this module examines how the application of x-ray, ultrasound, magnetic resonance and other imaging techniques have allowed us to delve inside the body in different ways, and so develop a more detailed understanding of a variety of body functions and conditions. METHODS OF TEACHING: Lectures, discussions and class exercises (20 contact hours). METHODS OF ASSESSMENT: coursework (50%). Written class test (50%).

This course discusses the problems posed by diseases that are specifically tropical or ones that stem from deficiencies in water supply and sanitation provision.  The approach adopted is an ecological one and gives particular attention to control through habitat modification and technology transfer. This course discusses diseases that are particularly associated with the Developing World.  Some are transmitted by vectors and may also have animal reservoirs; others stem from food shortages, or from deficiencies in water supply and sanitation provision. The approach adopted is principally an ecological one and discusses the possibilities of control through habitat modification, technology transfer, raised awareness and medical intervention.
