Credit points: 3
Year: 2014
Student Contribution Band: Band 2
Administered by: School of Veterinary & Biomedical Sciences (pre 2015)

Available to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Occupational Therapy only

This subject will introduce the principles of human body structure and function as relevant for students of occupational therapy. This includes an introduction to cells and tissues, the nervous system and the function and relationshjips of bone, muscle, and joints. A detailed study of the gross anatomical structure and functional anatomy of the upper limb will then be undertaken. Physiological process and anatomical structure will be studied for the cardiovascular and respiratory systems together with the musculoskeletal anatomy of the thorax. An integrated understanding of the human body will be achieved with practical sessions, including the study of human cadaveric material, and functional and clinical case-studies to facilitate the integration of material and the correlation of structure to function.

Learning Outcomes

  • To discuss the relationship between the organisational levels of the human body from the cellular to the organ level;
  • To identify and describe the structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems;
  • To identify and describe the structure of the neck, vertebral column and upper limbs;
  • To critically apply anatomical and physiological knowledge to a human bioscience discipline.
