CHIR12004 - Neuromusculoskeletal Anatomy 1

General Information

Unit Synopsis

This unit builds on the basic anatomy taught in Human Body Systems 1 and 2. You will further develop your knowledge of anatomy and physiology, which will include studies in gross anatomy, embryology and histology, clinical and living anatomy. You will integrate this, where appropriate, with other basic sciences. An emphasis will be placed on clinical anatomy of the limbs and trunk.

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) 15%
2. Practical Assessment 35%
3. Examination 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: Have your say report.
Feedback
If the recorded lectures were split into smaller videos rather than one big one for the whole week that would make it a bit easier to watch each week
Recommendation
The Lectures will begin to be re-recorded into smaller recordings. Student's can note the video 'time' (in minutes / seconds) that student viewing takes place and can return to that time ... portion of the Lecture
Action Taken
Fresh shorter recordings for the longest lectures were completed this year. The unit will be modified over the coming year as it is being managed by a new unit coordinator.
Source: Have your say report.
Feedback
The lectures are great and informative. However, they're difficult at time to follow when the lecturer scrolls through slides rapidly back and forwards. Ideally lectures done only on each topic rather than one extremely lengthy one.
Recommendation
Lectures will begin to be re-recorded in smaller topical sessions.
Action Taken
Fresh shorter recordings were produced this year for some of the largest lectures.
Source: Have your say report.
Feedback
Possibly consider breaking the lectures up and possibly more text book references to use as a study guide
Recommendation
Lecturer will refer more specifically to Chapters and pages of the textbook.
Action Taken
The lecturer attempted to provide more clear references to the textbook nominated for the unit.
Source: Have Your Say
Feedback
Many students appreciated the support of their practical class tutors across the campuses.
Recommendation
The unit will continue to be staffed with knowledgeable and enthusiastic tutors.
Action Taken
Nil.
Source: Have Your Say
Feedback
Many students agreed with previous feedback regarding the need for freshly recorded lectures.
Recommendation
The new unit coordinator will endeavour to record shorter more user friendly lectures.
Action Taken
Nil.
Source: Have Your Say
Feedback
Some students commented that the required textbook did not seem to be regularly referenced in the content.
Recommendation
The new unit coordinator will review the required textbook and determine whether it remains appropriate.
Action Taken
Nil.
Unit learning Outcomes

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

  1. Explain the embryologic processes that underpin anatomy, neuroanatomy and physiology of the human body.
  2. Describe the osteology, arthrology, myology, arterial supply, venous and lymphatic drainage and innervation of the limbs and trunk.
  3. Identify on bones, models, images and the living subject, the structures forming the limbs and trunk.
  4. Describe the actions of the muscles, individually and collectively, of the limbs and trunk.
  5. Apply your knowledge of anatomy, neuroanatomy and physiology to clinical case studies.
