Human Anatomy for Medical Translators

The study of the human body involves anatomy and physiology. Human anatomy is the scientific study of the morphology of the human body. Divided into gross anatomy (the study of anatomical structures that can be seen with the naked eye) and microscopic anatomy, (the study of cellular tissues at all levels) Physiology is the science of how all the systems and the organs of the human body interact in order to maintain the body’s homeostasis.

Anatomy is the study of form and physiology is the study of function. They are intrinsically related.

The speaker aims to give an overview of human anatomy and its many interacting systems. Skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, circulatory, digestive, immune, renal, reproductive, respiratory, lymphatic and integumentary.

Diane Cantrell

Diane is a qualified and highly experienced osteopath. She qualified in 1988 from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine which based in London. It was a 4 year, full time course split between Osteopathic college, Middlesex hospital and Royal College of Surgeons. By year 3 she was let loose and allowed to treat the unsuspecting public in the college’s osteopathic clinic.

On graduation she  worked as a locum in Kent, before moving to West Sussex.
Her career has been varied and very interesting. She has been privileged enough to work with many elite athletes and eminent orthopaedic surgeons. Although very physical, it is a rewarding, and enjoyable job, with most patients leaving her clinic happier and healthier.

She now works in a busy multidisciplinary clinic which includes six other osteopaths, an acupuncturist, a chiropodist and three remedial massage therapists.

  1. The webinar with Diane was excellent. We had an extensive but obviously far from complete overview of the human skeleton and she also showed us how the bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments interrelate. The demonstration was properly illustrated so one was always able to see what she talked about. The detail in which she discussed the skeleton was right for me since it gave me new information while revising the basics but it did not overwhelm with minute precisions I would have found too much to take in at a time. Her delivery was crystal clear which also helps with understanding and remembering as much as one can the right way.

    A well presented and informative overview of the various systems that comprise the human body – both useful as a reference resource, and an inspiration to study anatomy in greater depth.
