PSIO12003 - Functional Anatomy and Biomechanics 2

General Information

Unit Synopsis

This course will provide students with a comprehensive overview of functional anatomy and biomechanics, including the cervical and thoracic spine, pectoral girdle and upper limb, and the abdominal wall. A strong focus will be on the integrated functions of anatomical structures and how this both influence and is influenced by biomechanical features. There will be a focus on how the skeletal, muscular, nervous, and circulatory systems are integrated.

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. Practical Assessment 60%
2. Oral Examination 40%

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. Palpate the bones, bony landmarks, ligaments, neurovascular structures and muscles of the upper quadrant, including the head, neck, thoracic spine, abdominal wall, pectoral girdle and upper limb.
  2. Apply the principles of biomechanics to human physical performance across a range of functional activities.
  3. Describe and explain the location of neurovascular structures of the trunk, head neck and upper limb.
  4. Explain and analyse the relationship between anatomical structure and function as it applies to the trunk, head neck and upper limb.
