Learning objectives

General objective

Integrate the anatomy to the clinical practice of physiotherapy and the respective double degrees.

Specific objectives.

  1. Identify anatomical column structures (II) thorax, pelvis and lower limb
  2. Determine the principles of functional anatomy that facilitate movement in each joint of, column (II) thorax, pelvis and lower limb
  3. Identify by means of palpation the anatomical structures of head, column (II) thorax, pelvis and lower limb
  4. Learn the anatomy of the nervous system and its correlation with the rest of musculo-skeletal structures, devices and systems.
  5. Knowledge of the internal reality of the musculo-skeletal system through dissection and osteoporosis practices
Significant competences

Subject contents

SUBJECT 1: Artrology and myology of pelvis, thorax and abdomen. Blood vessels and innervation.
THEME 2: Palpation of the spine, chest and pelvis (II)
THEME 3: Osteology, arthrology and myology of lower extremities. Blood vessels and innervation.
UNIT 4: Palpation of lower extremities.
UNIT 5: Nervous system, descriptive anatomy. Plexuses
UNIT 6: Palpation of the nervous system.


In this subject, the student is the protagonist of the continuous learning throughout the course. During the course, theoretical and practical classes will be combined

The practical classes will be fundamentally palpatory, although practical seminars will also be carried out with classroom exercises, osteotheca sessions and corpse dissection sessions

Attendance to group classes is compulsory to be able to pass the subject

The classes of a large group will be basically descriptive but requesting the participation of the students. Class activities will be performed as a visualization of dissection images to identify muscle and joint structures. Likewise, classroom activities are proposed to facilitate and integrate learning and will have complementary material outside of notes or slides worked in the classroom.

The classes of small group will be devoted essentially to palpation, osteoteca and cadaver dissection. For classes of small group it will be essential to respect the regulations of the different classes such as dissection, osteotheca and palpation. Other activities in the classroom are also plated that allow better learning such as description of bone in osteoteca, explanation of a region for peers and dissection.

For the classes of palpation students will have a list of structures to explore (non-exhaustive list) that will facilitate and guide the matter that is subject to examination.

Development plan

The subject will be developed through master classes where the whole theoretical part of the syllabus and mainly practical seminars will be taught where it will be taught to feel the different structures studied in the theoretical part.


The evaluation of the learning will be done in the following way:

EVALUATION: The final grade of the course will consist of 2 evaluation activities:

The final score will be out of the average of the 2 exam notes, it is necessary to obtain at least 50% of the maximum possible score in a global way, although in order to be able to do the means it is necessary to have obtained, at the individual level, at least one 45% of the theoretical exam score and 50% in the practical exam.

It is scheduled after the first call and both suspended students can do so, as well as those approved with the intention of raising notes, but in this case the approved waives the note of the first convocation and will only count the note of the second, being able to suspend If in the second convocation the note is suspended even though the first one would have passed.

In the case of suspending any of the 2 exams (theory or practice) the entire subject is suspended and the student must enroll and complete the subject. In this case it is not possible to save a note of the partial examinations for other enrollments.

Unique evaluation:

Those students who request it, within the corresponding deadlines, may opt for the single Evaluation. This Assessment will be through the attendance of the theoretical and practical examinations in the first call, on the official dates allocated to them, and with the same punctuation rules indicated for the rest of the students
