All details in this unit profile for BMSC11010 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.
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.

Offerings For Term 1 - 2023
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.
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 3D anatomy platform. More details about accessing Complete Anatomy will be provided on Moodle.
