Final syllabus: Applied anatomy and physiology

Created: 19/12/2004
 

APPLIED ANATOMY

Candidates should be able to demonstrate a good understanding of human anatomy relevant to the practice of anaesthesia. The syllabus for the Primary FRCA examination is considered core knowledge. For the Final FRCA examination, application of this knowledge to clinical practice will be explored. This will include the knowledge of anatomy as demonstrated by endoscopic and imaging techniques.

APPLIED PHYSIOLOGY

Candidates are expected to be able to apply the basic knowledge of human physiology necessary to pass the Primary FRCA examination to the clinical practice of anaesthesia and intensive care medicine.
 
While all branches of physiology are of importance, it is recognised that clinical relevance dictates the topics selected for the examination.
