BM1042 - Anatomy and Physiology for Physiotherapy 2

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 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, trunk, head and neck. Physiological processes and anatomical structure will be studied for the gastrointestinal, renal, reproductive systems and endocrinology as relevant to rehabilitation sciences. 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.

Learning Outcomes

  • To identify and describe the structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) of the cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, urinary, reproductive and endocrine systems;
  • To identify and describe the structure of the lower limb;
  • To critically apply anatomical and physiological knowledge to a human bioscience discipline.
