General Information

Unit Synopsis

Students will be able to describe physiological concepts and embryology of the head and neck with particular relevance to the oral cavity and the dentition. Students will also be able to describe and identify relevant anatomic and physiological features of the head and neck with particular relevance to the oral cavity. Students will learn to describe the histology of tissues and organs of the oral cavity, and a healthy oral biological and biochemical environment and the importance of saliva. This course is offered in conjunction with the Oral Health Pathology and Diagnosis course to provide students with a sound foundation in oral health theory in readiness for second year. Lastly, students will be able to communicate oral health in oral and written formats in terms of relevant interpersonal/team communication skills and professional attitudes/behaviours.

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%).
