Description

The program includes several modules (directions). The main direction - in-depth study of the classical anatomy of the human body (and other mammals, in particular, laboratory animals) in combination with the analysis of images obtained with the help of modern methods of intravital imaging (CT, MRI, ultrasound). The study of the structure of the human body will be conducted both systematically (the system of the skeleton and joints of the bones, the muscular system, the cardiovascular system, etc.), and the topographic (head, neck, chest, abdomen, limbs) principles. The study of topography and the macroscopic structure of organs will be supplemented by a description of their microstructure (histology). This course includes lecture (and practical) courses in embryology with the basics of modern reproductive technologies, age and environmental physiology, comparative anatomy with the basics of evolution, neuroanatomy.
Methodological and methodological principles of teaching anatomy to students. The acquired competences will allow graduates to engage in teaching activities in schools, colleges, faculties of universities of the appropriate profile.
Legal and ethical aspects of studying and teaching anatomy. Fundamentals of biosafety. The knowledge gained will enable graduates to remain within the law in the conduct of research and teaching activities.

Lidia Obukhova

Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor of the Department of Physiology, Faculty of Natural Sciences, NSU. In 1981 she graduated with honors from Novosibirsk State Medical Institute. In 1987, she was awarded the degree of candidate of medical sciences with a specialization in human anatomy and in 1999, she was awarded the degree of Doctor of Medical Sciences with a specialization in human anatomy, the topic of her thesis is "Structural transformations in the lymphoid organs system under the action with extremely low temperatures on the organism and in the conditions of pharmacological correction of adaptive reaction by polyphenolic compounds of plant origin". From 1981 till 2013 she worked at the Institute of Clinical and Experimental Lymphology of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences. Area of her scientific interests: structural and functional state of lymphoid organs and endocrine glands in the process of adaptation of the organism to environmental factors, in conditions of premature aging of the organism, with oncological diseases, experimental diabetes. She published 80 scientific papers in Russian and foreign journals. Since 2006 she is a Professor of the Department of Physiology, Faculty of Natural Sciences, NSU. She gives lectures and practical courses in human anatomy and functional anatomy of the central nervous system for students of Faculty of Natural Sciences and Institute of Fundamental Medicine and Psychology NSU.

Career opportunities

Deep knowledge of the structure, development and functions of the human body organs and systems obtained during the development of the program will create a solid foundation for further research in the laboratories of biological and medical profiles and teaching activities in schools, colleges, universities. Specialists with expertise in the field of anatomy and intravital imaging are in demand in companies that develop high technologies for medicine.
