MH1062 - The Musculoskeletal System for Sports and Exercise Science
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Medicine & Dentistry
Available to any students with an interest in anatomy and physiology, excluding Nursing
Building upon MH1061 Introduction to Anatomy and Physiology, this subject will provide
a more detailed study of the structure and function of the musculoskeletal system,
with an emphasis on the aspects that are most relevant to Sports and Exercise Science.
The subject will comprise a detailed study of the gross anatomical structure and functional
anatomy of the lower limbs, together with the musculoskeletal anatomy of the thorax,
trunk, skeletal muscle, and neuromuscular function. The anatomy and physiology of
the cardiovascular and respiratory systems will also be studied. 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 case studies to facilitate
the integration and correlation of the material.
- 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.
