a. Students will learn to identify the following:
b. Scapula – including spine, acromion, metacromion, coracoid process, glenoid fossa, supraspinous fossa, infraspinous fossa, and subscapular fossa.
c. Humerus – including head, greater and lesser tuberosity, bicipital groove, anatomical and sergical neck, supracondylar foramen, lateral and medial epicondyles, capitulum, trochlea, radial fossa, coronoid fossa, olecranon fossa, and deltoid tuberosity.
d. Radius – including head, neck, radial tuberosity, styloid process.
e. Ulna – including olecranon, trochlear notch, coronoid process, styloid process.
f. Carpus. Metacarpals (know their numbering as well!). Proximal, middle, and distal phalanges.
