All details in this unit profile for BIOH11006 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student).
The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction
included in the profile.
On successful completion, students will have a detailed understanding of the normal functioning of the human body. Students will be able to describe the structure and function of the major organ systems of the human body, including the nervous, circulatory, digestive, respiratory, renal, endocrine, immune and reproductive systems. Students will be able to explain the role of regulatory and feedback control systems in maintaining body functions within effective operational limits.

Offerings For Term 3 - 2019
All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes –
in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory.
International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet
both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period
(satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).
This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task,
based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%,
or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must
also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task,
as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the
University’s Grades and Results Policy
for more details of interim results and final grades.
The Unit Coordinator is Ms Roslyn Clapperton (email@example.com) whom is an exercise physiologist in the final stages of her PhD. The lectures of Week 2, 6, 7, 8 9 and 10 are pre-recorded lectures of Mr. William Deasy. Mr. Deasy is a microbiologist and he is in the final stages of completing a PhD in Medical Physiology. The lectures of Week 1, 3, 4, 5,6, 11, 12 are pre-recorded lectures of Ms Roslyn Clapperton. With additional material provided byDr. Romeo Batacan. Dr. Batacan is a medicaldoctor (MD) who later completed a PhD in Biomedical Science. The live tutorials are delivered by both Ms Roslyn Clapperton andJodie Gibbs (a nurse for the Flying Doctors). The forums on the Moodle site are checked by Ms Roslyn Clapperton.
1 Online Quiz(zes)
An understanding of human anatomy and physiology is essential in many health professions. The fundamentals of this knowledge must be learnt and understood. The knowledge and concepts taught in this unit have been identified by various health professions as relevant to your future scope of practice. Completion of progress quizzes will assess your understanding of these concepts and knowledge. 1. There will be four separate progress quizzes to assess your knowledge of the unit material. 2. Each progress quiz will have 30 questions. 3. Each progress quiz will open on Week 1 Monday at 09:00 and will close on Exam/Revision Week Monday (17/02/20) 17:00 (AEST) 4. You will be allowed three attempts at each quiz. It is not compulsory to attempt the quiz three times. The attempt where you achieved the highest grade will serve as your final score for that quiz. 5. There is a 24-hour time restriction between attempts. 6. Your score from each progress quiz will contribute 12.5% to your final grade (4 quizzes X 12.5%= 50%). 7. In the absence of an approved extension, there will be no opportunity to complete the quiz after the due date.
Describe the detailed anatomy and normal functioning of the major physiological systems of the human body.
Explain the neuronal and hormonal control mechanisms of human body systems.
Describe the interplay of factors involved in normal system function and how these are usually kept within effective operational limits.

Academic Integrity Statement
As a CQUniversity student you are expected to act honestly in all aspects of your academic work.
Any assessable work undertaken or submitted for review or assessment must be your own work.
Assessable work is any type of work you do to meet the assessment requirements in the unit,
including draft work submitted for review and feedback and final work to be assessed.
When you use the ideas, words or data of others in your assessment,
you must thoroughly and clearly acknowledge the source of this information by using the correct referencing style for your unit.
Using others’ work without proper acknowledgement may be considered a form of intellectual dishonesty.
Participating honestly, respectfully, responsibly, and fairly in your university study ensures the CQUniversity qualification
you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.
As a student, you are responsible for reading and following CQUniversity’s policies, including the
Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure.
This policy sets out CQUniversity’s expectations of you to act with integrity, examples of academic integrity breaches to avoid,
the processes used to address alleged breaches of academic integrity, and potential penalties.
What is a breach of academic integrity?
A breach of academic integrity includes but is not limited to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, collusion, cheating, contract cheating, and academic misconduct.
The Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure defines what these terms mean and gives examples.
Why is academic integrity important?
A breach of academic integrity may result in one or more penalties, including suspension or even expulsion from the University.
It can also have negative implications for student visas and future enrolment at CQUniversity or elsewhere.
Students who engage in contract cheating also risk being blackmailed by contract cheating services.
Where can I get assistance?
For academic advice and guidance, the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) can support you in becoming confident in completing assessments with integrity and of high standard.
