CHIR12008 - Neuromusculoskeletal Anatomy 2
Term 2 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for CHIR12008 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student). The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction included in the profile.

Overview

This unit builds on the anatomy taught in Human Body Systems 1 and 2, as well as Neuromusculoskeletal Anatomy 1. You will further develop your knowledge of anatomy and physiology, which will include studies in gross anatomy, embryology and histology, clinical and living anatomy. You will integrate this, where appropriate, with other basic sciences. The focus for this unit is neuroanatomy and the anatomy of the head and neck region.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Assessment Overview

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Online Quiz(zes) 15%
2. Practical Assessment 35%
3. Examination 50%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Procedures for more details of interim results and final grades.

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback Source Recommendation
Improved resources are required at the Brisbane campus. Students and unit convenor This is being remedied, and sufficient models will be available in 2017.
The wet lab experience was invaluable. Students This will be offered in 2017 as well.
The workbook was helpful. Students This will be refined and improved.
Lectures need to integrate better with the practical classes. Students and convenor This was due to the lack of human resources, and the need to use lectures from another source. From 2017, this will have been rectified.
Human Anatomy Software is required to facilitate student learning. Students and convenor Request for this continues.The major obstacle to this is due to the cost of software subscriptions.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Explain the embryologic processes that underpin anatomy, neuroanatomy and physiology of the human body.
  2. Describe the osteology, arthrology, myology, arterial supply, venous and lymphatic drainage and innervation of the head and neck region.
  3. Describe the structure, function and integration of components within the central and peripheral nervous system.
  4. Identify, where appropriate, using bones, models, images and/or the living subject, the structures forming the nervous system and the head and neck region.
  5. Apply your knowledge of anatomy, neuroanatomy and physiology to clinical case studies.

Assessment Title Online Quiz(zes)
Task Description

There will be three online quizzes administered via Moodle. Each will be available for approximately 2 weeks. There will be no extension due to unforeseen technical problems or Internet connectivity, so please do not leave it to to the end of the time period to do it. Each online quiz will be based on the material covered in lectures, tutorials and practical classes in the weeks as outlined below. Students will be allowed one attempt only for each online quiz, which must be completed within the allotted time.

  • Online Quiz 1 (opens - start of Week 4) covers osteology, arthrology, myology, meninges and vascular features of the head and neck (i.e. material from Weeks 1-3) and is worth 5%
  • Online Quiz 2 (opens - start of Week 8) covers nervous system and innervation of the head and neck (i.e. material from Weeks 4-7) and is worth 5%
  • Online Quiz 3 (opens - start of Week 10) covers the remainder of the unit content (material from Weeks 8-10) and is worth 5%
