BM1042 - Anatomy and Physiology for Physiotherapy 2
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Public Health, Medical & Vet Sciences
Available to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Physiotherapy, Bachelor of Physiotherapy
IHCAP Program and the Bachelor of Physiotherapy Honours Program only.
This subject builds on the principles introduced in BM1041 Anatomy and Physiology
for Physiotherapy 1. This subject will comprise a detailed study of the gross anatomy
of the lower limb. Physiological processes and anatomical structure will be studied
for the gastrointestinal, renal, reproductive systems and endocrinology as relevant
to physiotherapy. The emphasis will be on gaining an integrated understanding of the
human body through practical sessions, including the study of human cadaveric material,
and functional and clinical case-studies to facilitate the integration of material
and the correlation to practice.
- to identify and describe in detail the structure (anatomy) and function (physiology)
of the cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, urinary, reproductive and endocrine
- to identify and describe in detail the musculoskeletal related structures and functions
of the lower limb;
- to critically apply anatomical and physiological knowledge to physiotherapy practice.
