CHIR12008 - Neuromusculoskeletal Anatomy 2

General Information

Unit Synopsis

This unit builds on the anatomy taught in Human Body Systems 1 and 2, as well as Neuromusculoskeletal Anatomy 1. 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. The focus for this unit is neuroanatomy and the anatomy of the head and neck region.

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: Evaluations - anonymous
Feedback
Desire to participate in wet labs and possibly dissections.
Recommendation
This was a very strong recommendation within the student evaluation commentary. The unit coordinator will see what can be done in relation to Wet labs and dissections.
Action Taken
The unit coordinator provided an opportunity however there was not enough student interest to make it viable.
Source: Evaluations - anonymous
Feedback
A desire for more Anatomical Models, continue to update lecturers and condense and revise the level of content
Recommendation
The unit coordinator will continue to seek University budget and support for more anatomical models. This will enhance the practical exams. Lectures are revised and updated on an ongoing bases.
Action Taken
New models have been provided on all campuses. The lectures will be updated by the new unit coordinators during the unit update.
Source: Evaluations - anonymous
Feedback
A recommendation was suggested, to speed up lecture videos so they can speed watch when needed.
Recommendation
The unit coordinator will review the platform in which lectures are recorded and see if a recording that can be viewed at an accelerated pace is possible.
Action Taken
This appears to have been resolved as it was not mentioned in the student feedback.

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 head and neck region.
  3. Describe the structure, function and integration of components within the central and peripheral nervous system.
  4. Identify, where appropriate, using bones, models, images and/or the living subject, the structures forming the nervous system and the head and neck region.
  5. Apply your knowledge of anatomy, neuroanatomy and physiology to clinical case studies.
