BMSC11007 - Medical Anatomy and Physiology 1

General Information

Unit Synopsis

In this unit, you will learn to apply anatomical terminology and the concept of levels of organisation when describing the human body and its systems. You will describe the anatomical features, function and physiological regulation of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, lymphatic, digestive, respiratory, nervous, endocrine, urinary, and reproductive human body systems. In addition, you will study the anatomical and physiological relations involved in human movement including the effects of use, disuse and ageing on the pelvic region, perineum and lower limbs.

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).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Online Quiz(zes) 50%
2. Practical Assessment 50%

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%).

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Source: Student feedback and self-reflection
Feedback
In online quizzes, the short text-entry response computer-marked questions often require manual re-scoring. This delays feedback to students and is labour-intensive to administer.
Recommendation
Revise online quizzes to replace these text-entry questions with question types that do not require manual scoring or re-scoring.
Action Taken
Nil.
Source: Student and staff feedback
Feedback
Student appreciation for end of term practical assessment preparation
Recommendation
Continue to deliver an end of term preparation for the practical assessment on all campuses.

Unit learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:

  1. Describe the anatomical features, function and physiological regulation of the cells, tissues, and organs of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, lymphatic, digestive, respiratory, nervous, endocrine, urinary, and reproductive human body systems
  2. Identify and describe anatomical structures of the normal human body focusing on musculoskeletal and neurovascular structures of the pelvis, perineum, and lower limbs
  3. Explain the anatomical and physiological relations involved in human movement
  4. Describe the human body’s response to use, disuse and aging across the lifespan
  5. Apply anatomical terminology and the concept of levels of organisation when describing the human body and its systems.

This unit was created to meet the accreditation requirements of the allied health courses in relation to musculoskeletal and neurovascular anatomy and physiology.
