Human Anatomy I (CHI108)
|Organisational Unit||Psychology, Counselling, Exercise Science and Chiropractic|
|Teaching Timetables||Murdoch S2
|Description||CHI108 is a systems-based human gross anatomy unit which builds upon the introductory unit CHI168. The Integumentary, Skeletal, Muscular, Nervous, Endocrine, Cardiovascular, Lymphatic, Respiratory, Digestive, Urinary and Reproductive Systems are covered in CHI108. The students will utilise lectures, tutorials, living anatomy practicals and cadaveric anatomy laboratory classes to gain a solid understanding of gross anatomy.|
|Unit Learning Outcomes||On successful completion of the unit you should be able to:
1. Understand and utilise correct anatomical terminology.
2. Understand the structure, function and arrangement of organs of the human body.
3. Amalgamate information from lectures, laboratory/practical sessions and your own self-directed study to form a solid core of anatomical knowledge in preparation for second-year anatomy.
|Timetabled Learning Activities||Lectures: 1 x 2 hrs per week;
Cadaveric anatomy laboratory: 1 x 1hr per week;
Living anatomy practical: 1 x 1hr per week.
|Unit Learning Experiences||The lectures are intended to support and accompany material covered in the essential textbooks for this unit. They do not substitute for wider reading but provide an opportunity to highlight specific details and for class discussion.
Tutorials are held each week for 1 hour and provide an opportunity for further discussion or extra activities. This time is used to develop skill sets required to complete the practical examinations at the end of the teaching period. Tutorials are not recorded on Echo360.
Attendance at living anatomy and cadaveric anatomy classes is mandatory. Examining models and cadavers in the laboratory is vitally important in grasping the three-dimensional structure of the human body and the inter-relationship between organs and systems. Photographs of models and cadavers in the laboratory will be used in theory examinations.
|Prerequisites||CHI168 Introduction to Human Musculoskeletal Anatomy OR BMS101 Introduction to the Human Body|
|Exclusions||Students who have successfully completed BMS108 Comparative Musculoskeletal Anatomy or CHI108 Functional Human Anatomy may not enrol in this unit for credit.|

|Internet Access Requirements||Murdoch units normally include an online component comprising materials, discussions, lecture recordings and assessment activities. All students, regardless of their location or mode of study, need to have access to and be able to use computing devices with browsing capability and a connection to the Internet via Broadband (Cable, ADSL or Mobile) or Wireless. The Internet connection should be readily available and allow large amounts of data to be streamed or downloaded (approximately 100MB per lecture recording). Students also need to be able to enter into online discussions and submit assignments online.|
