2020 unit offering information will be available in September 2019
Develops student’s anatomical knowledge of the lower limb. Students will also learn functional aspects of lower limb anatomy and will be introduced to biomechanics. Structured learning activities, cooperative and problem-based learning using wet labs and models will facilitate student learning.
- Structure and function of the human nail
- Musculoskeletal structure and function of the lower limb
- Neurovascular structure and function of the lower limb
- Surface anatomy of the lower limb
- Introduction to human gait and biomechanics
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
