HLTH108 or ANAT1001
This unit builds on the basic anatomy taught in ANAT1001 (previously HLTH108). The regional anatomy of the head, neck and trunk is examined in detail. The unit utilises an integrated approach within which relevant gross anatomy, histology and embryology are studied. It is clinically oriented and focuses on surface and applied anatomy. The unit includes a significant practical component in which human remains, models, medical images, surface anatomy and clinical cases are studied. Students are expected to show an appreciation and respect for those who have bequeathed their bodies to science.
Information about important academic dates including deadlines for withdrawing from units are available at https://www.mq.edu.au/study/calendar-of-dates
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
These Quizzes will be conducted online in weeks 2-5 and 9-11, total of seven quizzes. Each Quiz typically consists of around 10 questions (multiple choice, matching, T&F) on the theory of current weeks, and you will be given around 12 mins to complete each quiz. You will only be allowed one attempt at each question and one attempt for the whole quiz. The Quiz will become available on the Friday evening of the allocated week (e.g. Quiz 1 opens on Fri of Week 2) and will stay open for one week for you to complete in your own time (i.e. Quiz 1 will close on Fri of Week 3, at 5pm). Late attempts will not be accepted. Feedback will be provided once the quiz has closed (i.e. for Quiz 1 feedback will be given in Week 3). The best five marks out of seven marks for quizzes will be counted towards the 20% of the final mark for the unit. The schedule of quizzes and their topics can be found on iLearn.
Practical examinations, the Spot Test 1 in Week 7 and Sport Test 2 in Week 13, focus on practical identifications of anatomical structures. Therefore, typically these tests are held in the usual scheduled practical laboratory classes (i.e. in the wet laboratory). Students will be warned of any changes in the timetable or location of these tests. Each spot test assesses students' ability to identify correctly anatomical structures on human remains, bones, models, medical images, and surface anatomy photographs. Typically, there are around 20 stations with several identifications in each. Some relevant theoretical questions may also be included. The scope of Spot Test 1 is on the practical knowledge achieved during the first six weeks of the semester (week 1 throughout to week 6, inclusive), and Spot Test 2 examines the practical knowledge relevant to weeks 7 throughout to week 13. The value of Spot Test 1 is 15% and of Spot Test 2 - 20% towards the final mark for the unit.
Students must attend the class they are enrolled in, unless permission has been granted by the Campus Well Being and Disability Services. Students with a pre-existing disability/health condition or prolonged adverse circumstances may be eligible for ongoing assistance and support. Such support is governed by other policies and may be sought and coordinated through Campus Wellbeing and Support Services. If a practical exam is missed a supplementary exam will only be considered under the Special Consideration policy (https://students.mq.edu.au/study/my-study-program/special- consideration). Applications for special consideration should be submitted online within 5 days of the missed assessment (see: www.ask.mq.edu.au).
Final Theory Examination
This examination is held during the formal examination period, at the end of the semester. Its value is 45% towards the final mark. The examination is based on the entire content studied throughout the term covering gross anatomy of the head, neck and trunk. The format of this paper comprises multiple choice and short answer questions, including clinical cases and problem-solving. A typical structure of the examination paper includes around 60-70 multiple choice questions (answers to be filled in the automated marking sheets) and several (e.g. three) short answer questions (answers to be written in the answer booklet provided). The content of this examination is aligned with the learning outcomes for the unit and all the learning and teaching activities that students participate in throughout the semester. The confidence in the knowledge and the examination skills will be built consistently throughout participation in weekly quizzes (multiple choice questions) and tutorial discussions (problem solving and clinical cases). There will be no identification tasks in the final theory examination. Special Consideration procedures are as described above.

Seven online quizzes throughout the semester testing acquired theory knowledge.
Spot test in the anatomy laboratory focusing on trunk anatomy; utilising human remains, bones, x-rays, and surface anatomy photographs. This assessment assess identification of anatomical structures as well as some theoretical knowledge.
Spot test in the anatomy laboratory focusing on head and neck anatomy; utilising human remains, bones, x-rays, and surface anatomy photographs. This assessment assess identification of anatomical structures as well as some theoretical knowledge.
Theory exam covering head, neck and trunk anatomy. The format includes multiple choice and short answer questions, and includes clinical cases.

1. Unit Schedule
A typical weekly schedule includes:
Please enter your choice for practical and tutorial classes on e-student. Once you are on the attendance list for that practical, you may not change to another. If you appear at another practical, you will be turned away. Under exceptional circumstances, practical times may be changed, but ONLY if you have contacted the Lab Manager, and have permission to make a swap. Participation in practical classes is a hurdle requirement for this unit. It is a condition of passing the unit that students must actively participate in a minimum of 80% of the practical classes for the semester.
3. Required Texts and Materials
The unit iLearn website can be accessed through the ilearn.mq.edu.au. Unit Manual (includes Lab and Tut notes) is available in iLearn. You can print your own copy. All lecture and tutorial slides will be posted on iLearn. You will find a link to Echo recordings of the lectures on this website. You will also find a Leganto link on iLearn that will show you the library resources available to support your learning. Please note that there is a limit in the number of users that simultaneously can access the electronic textbooks. Therefore, it might be a good idea to purchase your own textbook - see a list of prescribed texts below (available via Booktopia). Later or earlier editions of the textbooks/atlases are acceptable (you can discuss this with your tutors and/or convenor). Further readings can be found via the Leganto link.
Weekly unit schedule will be provided on iLearn.

In response to the COVID-related changes in the scheduling situation, ANAT2003 unit has been thoroughly re-evaluated and re-organised to support a logical sequence of topics and the learner-centered curriculum delivery. Each week is supplemented by newly-developed learning activities that provide flexibility for individual studies and the efficient/immediate feedback. All learning activities in the unit are strongly aligned with the learning outcomes and assessment. These activities include revision tasks, formative quizzes, pre- and post-lab activities such as labelling tasks and self-paced tutorials, additional external links to 3D structures and clinical case videos. Therefore, the entire unit has been re-designed with the aim of improving the logistics of the curriculum delivery and a strong positive alignment between learning objectives, learning/teaching activities and assessment.
