This is the final unit in the Anatomy and Physiology major where you will synthesise knowledge to appreciate the structural and functional relationships of the human body and enable a better understanding of the features of health and disease. Delivered as a series of lectures, small group learning, presentations and practicals, it will cover the regions of the body routinely examined clinically as part of an initial patient assessment. Clinically applied anatomy of the head and neck, nervous system, thorax, abdomen, pelvis and limbs will be emphasised, and reinforced by examination of cadavers, surface anatomy, imaging and clinical testing. The course will be useful for students considering medicine or paramedical careers where initial patient assessment is mandatory.

General Assessment Information
Grade descriptors and other information concerning grading are contained in Schedule 1 of the Macquarie University Assessment Policy, which is available at: https://staff.mq.edu.au/work/strategy-planning-and-governance/university-policies-and-procedures/policies/assessment.
Further details for each assessment task will be available on iLearn.
All final grades are determined by a grading committee and are not the sole responsibility of the Unit Convenor.
To pass this unit, students must demonstrate sufficient evidence of achievement of the learning outcomes, attempt all assessment tasks, meet any ungraded requirements including professionalism and achieve an SNG of 50 or better.
In the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, professionalism is a key capability embedded in all our courses. As part of developing professionalism, students are expected to attend all small group interactive sessions including tutorials, as well as clinical- and laboratory-based practical sessions.
Furthermore, lectures and seminars are key learning activities that you are expected to attend throughout completion of the Bachelor of Clinical Sciences. While audio recordings and lecture slides may be made available following these large group sessions, it is important to recognise that such resources are a study aid and should not be considered an alternative to lecture or seminar attendance.
Students are required to attend a minimum of 80% of all sessions. Students that do not meet this requirement may be deemed unable to meet expectations regarding professionalism and may be referred for disciplinary action (which may include exclusion from assessments and unit failure).
Similarly, as part of developing professionalism, students are expected to submit all work by the due date. Applications for assessment task extensions must be supported by appropriate evidence and submitted via www.ask.mq.edu.au. For further details please refer to the Special Consideration Policy available at https://students.mq.edu.au/study/my-study-program/special-consideration.
Late submissions will receive a 5% per day penalty including weekends and public holidays. If you submit the assessment task 10 days or more beyond the due date, without an approved extension, you will be awarded a maximum of 50% of the overall assessment marks.

This unit involves essential on-campus learning activities which will be delivered in accordance with a COVID Safe plan. You are expected to attend on-campus for these activities unless the Public Health Orders and/or University advice changes, you have any symptoms of COVID or you have been identified as a contact of an individual with COVID. Please refer to iLearn for further information.
This unit will be delivered by lectures, practicals, regular assessments and tutorials. It will be assessed by regular short quizzes, followed by a discussion of the answers, by a mid session assessment and by an end of session assessments.
Lectures will be delivered online. You should pay attention to the study focusing questions in each lecture as these, together with the questions in the anatomy practical guides, will form the basis of your assessments. For the medical imaging lectures, you will be guided through image stacks and then directed to websites where you can navigate through the same image stacks at your own pace.
The short quizzes that occur most weeks, will allow you to accumulate marks towards your final mark and will provide you with an opportunity to discuss areas of difficulty with your peers and staff.
The anatomy practicals are designed as revision practicals that focus on clinically relevant topics. They assume that you have a working knowledge of all the body regions and will have read the practical notes and attempted the questions before the practical.
The applied anatomy practicals in the clinical skills unit provide you with an opportunity to practice elements of clinical skills so that you can recognise these and explain their purpose in assessments. You will not be assessed on your ability to perform the examinations and there will be no diagnosis.
