This course focuses on the anatomy of the tongue, hard and soft palates, the pharynx and the larynx, as well as the nasal cavity and the paranasal sinuses.

Students will study the structures within the oral cavity, the different papillae, taste buds, and the role of the tongue in speech, mastication, and swallowing. By studying the upper aerodigestive tract, medical students gain a solid foundation for future learning in fields such as otolaryngology, pulmonology, gastroenterology, and speech pathology.
