ANAT1002 – Anatomy of Limbs and Back

2021 – Session 2, Special circumstances, North Ryde

Session 2 Learning and Teaching Update

The decision has been made to conduct study online for the remainder of Session 2 for all units WITHOUT mandatory on-campus learning activities. Exams for Session 2 will also be online where possible to do so.

This is due to the extension of the lockdown orders and to provide certainty around arrangements for the remainder of Session 2. We hope to return to campus beyond Session 2 as soon as it is safe and appropriate to do so.

Some classes/teaching activities cannot be moved online and must be taught on campus. You should already know if you are in one of these classes/teaching activities and your unit convenor will provide you with more information via iLearn. If you want to confirm, see the list of units with mandatory on-campus classes/teaching activities.

Unit description Unit description

This unit builds on the basic anatomy taught in ANAT1001 (previously known as HLTH108) (Introduction to Anatomy). It focuses on the musculoskeletal anatomy of the upper and lower limbs and back. The unit utilises an integrated approach within which relevant gross and radiological anatomy as well as histology and embryology are investigated in detail. 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.

Important Academic Dates

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:

  • ULO1: Describe and identify the structural and functional features of the musculoskeletal components of the limbs and back and their anatomical relations.
  • ULO2: Describe and identify the arterial supply, venous and lymphatic drainage of the musculoskeletal components of the limbs and back.
  • ULO4: Identify bony landmarks of the limbs and back and identify major structures on selected radiographs, CT and MRI images.
  • ULO5: Apply acquired knowledge of the anatomy of the limbs and back to investigate clinical case studies.
  • ULO3: Demonstrate, where appropriate, on a living subject: a. musculoskeletal landmarks of the limbs and back b. the route of nerves and blood vessels of the limbs and back c. movements at joints d. muscle actions.
  • ULO6: Communicate and demonstrate an appreciation and respect for those who have bequeathed their bodies to research.

General Assessment Information

Online Quiz (cumulative 10% towards the final mark)

There will be three online Quizzes: Quiz 1 - conducted in Week 4; Quiz 2 - in Week 10 and Quiz 3 - in Week 12. Each Quiz typically consists of 7 - 10 questions (multiple choice, matching, T&F, identifications) on the topics of Upper Limb (Quiz 1), Lower Limb (Quiz 2) and Back (Quiz 3). Only ONE attempt will be allowed at each question and ONE attempt for the whole quiz. The Quiz will become available at the end of the allocated week (e.g. Quiz 1 opens on Fri/Sat of Week 4) and will stay open for one week for you to complete in your own time (i.e. Quiz 1 will close on Fri/Sat of Week 5). Late attempts are not allowed. Feedback will be provided once the quiz has closed. The value of Quizzes 1 and 2 is 4% (each), and the value of Quiz 3 is 2% towards the final mark. The schedule of quizzes is included into the timetable, which can be found on iLearn. ULO assessed: 1-6. Supplementary quizzes can only be granted based on the approved special consideration application (https://students.mq.edu.au/ study/my-study-program/special- consideration).

Practical Examinations 1 and 2 (cumulative 50% towards the final mark)

The Practical Exam 1 (conducted in Week 6) and Practical Exam 2 (conducted in Week 13), focus on practical identifications of anatomical structures. Therefore, typically these tests are held in the usual location of the scheduled practical laboratory classes (i.e. in the anatomy laboratory for face-to-face mode of delivery), unless advised otherwise. Students will be warned of any changes in the timetable or location/mode of these tests. Each spot test assesses the ability to identify correctly anatomical structures on human remains, bones, models, medical images, and surface anatomy photographs. Additionally, relevant theory questions can be included. Typically, there are around 15-20 stations with several identifications in each. The value of Practical Exam 1 is 20% and of Practical Exam 2 - 30% towards the final mark for the unit. ULO assessed: 1-6. Students must attend the class they are enrolled in, unless permission has been granted by the unit convenor. 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 Exam (40% towards the final mark)

This exam is held during the formal examination period, at the end of the semester. Its value is 40% towards the final mark. The examination is based on the entire content studied throughout the term covering gross anatomy of the limbs and back. 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 or space provided in the examination paper). Short answer questions are typically based on problems, concepts, real life scenarios and clinical cases discussed at lectures, tutorials and laboratory practical classes. The content of this examination is aligned with the learning outcomes for the unit (ULO 1-6) and all the learning and teaching activities that students participate in throughout the entire semester. There will be no identification tasks in the final theory examination. Special Consideration procedures are applied as described above (https://students.mq.edu.au/ study/my-study-program/special- consideration).
