- The anatomy of the thigh, muscles of the anterior, posterior, and medial compartments, and important local structures.
- The anatomy of the leg, including joints, ligaments, biomechanics, muscles of the anterior, lateral, and posterior compartments, and important local structures.
- The anatomical areas and important structures of the leg, including bursae, the popliteal fossa, and the tarsal tunnel.
