General Information

Overview

Upon successful completion of this unit, you will be able to describe the structural levels of organisation within the body, use anatomical terminology to describe the relative location of structures in the body, and explain the role and general features of homeostasis in the body. You will also gain an understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic and immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive human body systems. Your knowledge and skills will be developed through a series of coursework exercises.

Attendance Requirements

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).

Class and Assessment Overview

Assessment Grading

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.

Term Specific Information

Unit coordinator contact details are provided on Moodle.


This free online textbook (https://openstax.org/details/books/anatomy-and-physiology) is the only textbook students need for this unit. It will be listed as “prescribed” and is the compulsory text for this unit.

Whereas the Patton textbook (Anatomy and Physiology: Adapted International Edition 9th (2018) Authors: Kevin T. Patton, Gary A. Thibodeau, Andrew Hutton) will be listed as “supplementary”. A supplementary textbook is not compulsory for the unit but adds more information as some students may want to read further.

Students will have free access to Complete Anatomy (https://3d4medical.com/) which is an excellent resource. More details about accessing Complete Anatomy will be provided on Moodle.

As per Australian educational standards, you are expected to commit 150 hours of engagement to your study of this unit. A recommended breakdown of study hours is given below:

  • 2 - 3 hours per week watching pre-recorded lectures and revising the content through study notes.
  • 2 - 3 hours per week completing the weekly study questions and weekly revision quizzes on the unit's Moodle site.
  • 2 - 3 hours per week attending the weekly tutorials and reflecting on your answers to the weekly revision worksheets.
  • 3 - 4 hours per week preparing for your assessable online quiz and end of term online test.

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.
