Unit description Unit description
This is the second of two on line units that build upon the basic anatomy taught in undergraduate medical programs. The gross anatomy of the human body is revised with an emphasis on clinically oriented and applied anatomy through full body dissection. Discussion of relevant embryology is also included. The unit is delivered via the university iLearn platform and activities are set for students to complete, with follow up quizzes that allow formative self assessment. Topic areas covered include; the anatomy of the central nervous system, thorax, abdomen and pelvis. Anatomy 2 is designed to prepare students for the level of anatomical knowledge required for the intensive whole body dissection unit Anatomy 3.

Important Academic Dates

Information about important academic dates including deadlines for withdrawing from units are available at http://students.mq.edu.au/student_admin/enrolmentguide/academicdates/

Learning Outcomes

  1. Describe the structural components of the central nervous system, thorax, abdomen and pelvis, their nerve and blood supply, venous and lymph drainage.
  2. Apply knowledge of the anatomy of the central nervous system, thorax, abdomen and pelvis to surface anatomy and medical images.
  3. Apply knowledge of the anatomy and anatomical relationships of the structures of the head neck and trunk to discuss diagnostics and clinical application.
  4. Analyse the structural components of the central and peripheral nervous systems, cranial nerves and autonomic nervous system to interpret the effect of damage to the components of the nervous system and predict outcomes after injury.

General Assessment Information

You must complete all three components of the assessment tasks in order to pass this unit.

Penalties for late submissions

Late submissions will be penalised unless special consideration is granted by the unit convenor. The penalty is 10% per day or part thereof.

Further details for each assessment task will be available on iLearn including marking rubrics.

Delivery and Resources

You will build up your anatomical competencies around several key learning outcomes within this online unit.

Use materials and resources provided on iLearn, access third party online information and read relevant chapters in prescribed books. To facilitate this process online quizzes and embedded questions are used as a tool for self-evaluation and self-direction throughout.
