#TOTW (x10) ‘#AnatomyWeek’

Hey hey hey!

Long time no see! I’ve been away on me jollies so not had a #TOTW for a while! I know right!? Anyways, I thought i’d kick the new school year off with another of my theme weeks (even though i’ve graduated now and am no longer at school!). In previous weeks i’ve covered CPD, addiction, assisted dying, the Society of Radiographers and the NHS. This week I chose to shine the light on and have an #AnatomyWeek. As per, with my theme weeks, below is a summary of all my #AnatomyWeek tweets for your delectation:

  • anatomy
  • #FollowFriday for #AnatomyWeek is @Irr_Anatomist. A great resource for #anatomy via #histmed & #MedicalIllustration @SCoRMembersFrom ‘Tabulae Anatomicae’ by Bartholomeo Eustachi, 1783.  @Irr_Anatomisthistmed
  • Just happened across this and had ta share. It’s sort of relevant to #AnatomyWeek! 😂 @SCoRMembers Not every day one gets a card from students with such a thoughtful and witty personalised anatomical message. Moved. @DocMatthanseminal
  • Other websites are available, but this seems particularly good & it’s *FREE*  http://www.anatomyzone.com/
  • How many @SCoRMembers know about muscle types, points of origin & insertion? Do we need to know? Should we know? #anatomy #CPD #AnatomyWeek

muscleanatomy

pelvis

cervical

  • Interested in #anatomy? You’d do well to follow @PastMedHistory to receive Regular doses of #GraysAnatomy 👍 Avit! #AnatomyWeek @SCoRMembers of the skull from 1918 edition of Gray’s Anatomy by Henry Vandyke Carter skull
  • It’s back to work for me tomorrow & time for another theme week so I have decided upon #AnatomyWeek @SCoRMembers

books

I hope you enjoyed the latest of my theme weeks, as I certainly enjoyed putting it together! In future theme weeks I will probably take a more in-depth look at some body parts/systems. Ah well, something for the future!

Take care and have fun learning! #ReadLearnShare

May #4PUF

Ciao!

Here are the 4 tweets I chose as my 4 Previously Untweeted Favourites (#4PUFs) for May:

(1/4) If you only look at one of the 4, make it this one – it’s worth it!  http://brightside.me/video/this-heartwarming-video-reminds-us-of-whats-truly-important-in-life-167505/

(2/4) Have you got any of these symptoms? Know friends/family that do? !

bowelcancer

9 in 10 people with will survive if they’re treated early enough… please share the symptoms!

(3/4) This is what happens if you ever need to contact . There are other ways than just calling  

samaritans

(4/4) I really should spend more time revising – always enjoyed it as a student!

Just a taste of the kind of things that I tweet about week in, week out. I hope you enjoy reading/watching them and get to learn something you didn’t already know!

#TOTW from 13-04-15 Fantastic wk1 ‘Exploring Anatomy: the Human Abdomen’

This week for my #TOTW I’m shamelessly going to plug (though not for financial reward I might add!) FutureLearn – a fantastic online resource (owned by The Open University) providing courses ***FREE*** in the form of MOOCs – Multiple Open Online Courses:

Fantastic wk1 ‘Exploring Anatomy: the Human Abdomen’ by

This past couple of weeks i’ve been refreshing my anatomical knowledge – and learning some new stuff – on the human abdomen, but there are so many different kinds of courses on a huge range of topics:

https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/upcoming

The course i’m currently doing is provided by the University of Leeds and lasts 3 weeks, taking up to 4hrs a week to complete. This depends on how much you get involved in the course with regards to the discussion boards and the amount of research you choose to do. As well as the basic information, there are advanced bits also if you choose to delve a little deeper. I am really enjoying this course and it has completely re-ignited my interest in anatomy.

I’ve previously studied with FutureLearn for courses to do with drug development and the brain. Check out the link above and see if you can find a course that might interest you!

Go on…give a go! Nothing to lose, and knowledge to gain!

Anatomy lectures by Professor Marian Diamond

Professor Marian Diamond *IS* a legend – FACT!

If you want to learn anything about human anatomy, then this is most certainly the lady to teach you! With her extremely infectious enthusiasm for the subject, you can push your textbooks to one side and watch nearly 40 hours (although I would advise not back-to-back!) of good old-fashioned teaching:

http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Marian-Diamond-anatomy-professor-a-YouTube-hit-2527209.php

I watched all 40 of her lectures whilst studying anatomy in the second year of my degree in Diagnostic Radiography. This is an invaluable resource for students of anatomy and also for those simply interested in the subject. All the lectures are from ‘Integrative Biology 131’ (2005) and were uploaded to YouTube by the University of California, Berkeley on August 20, 2007.

I challenge you to watch them and not to be carried away by her enthusiasm and love of the subject! Links to all 40 lectures are provided below in number order:
