|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Public Health, Medical & Vet Sciences
Available to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Physiotherapy, Bachelor of Physiotherapy
IHCAP Program of the Bachelor of Physiotherapy Honours Program only.
This subject will introduce the principles of human body structure and function as
relevant for students of physiotherapy. This includes an introduction to cells and
tissues, the nervous system and the function and relationships of bone, muscle, and
joints. A detailed study of the gross anatomical structure and functional anatomy
of the skull, neck, vertebral column, and upper limb will then be undertaken. 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.
- To critically apply anatomical and physiological knowledge to a human bioscience discipline;
- "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.
