BMSC11011 - Human Anatomy and Physiology 2

General Information

Unit Synopsis

Upon successful completion of this unit, you will be able to describe in detail the structural levels of organisation within the body, use medical 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 a deep 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. This unit will build upon knowledge gained during Human Anatomy and Physiology 1. You will be required to have access to a computer to make frequent use of internet resources and to complete assessment tasks.

Co-requisite: BMSC11010 Human Anatomy and Physiology 1

It is strongly recommended that students have enrolled into BMSC11010 Human Anatomy and Physiology 1 in a term prior to their enrolment in BMSC11011 Human Anatomy and Physiology 2

Important note: Students enrolled in a subsequent unit who failed their pre-requisite unit, should drop the subsequent unit before the census date or within 10 working days of Fail grade notification. Students who do not drop the unit in this timeframe cannot later drop the unit without academic and financial liability. See details in the Assessment Policy and Procedure (Higher Education Coursework).

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) 40%
2. Online Test 60%

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%).

Unit learning Outcomes

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

  1. Describe the structural levels of organisation and anatomical structures using medical terminology
  2. Explain the general features and role of homeostasis in the body
  3. Describe detailed human anatomical structures within the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic and immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary and reproductive systems
  4. Describe the human physiological functions in detail of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic and immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary and reproductive systems
  5. Discuss interactions of structure and function between human body systems
  6. Discuss the application of human anatomy and physiology relevant to your discipline.

In courses that are externally accredited, the learning outcomes are linked to the national standards of the respective professional organisation/s.
