Integrates the basic biomedical sciences (functional and clinical anatomy, biomechanics, tissue mechanics, histology and embryology) in preparation for the acquisition of clinical patient assessment skills of the trunk, vertebral column and the pelvic girdle.
Topic 1: Introduction to histology
Topic 2: Introduction to embryological development
Topic 3: Basic biomechanics of tissues
Topic 4: Clinical anatomy of the regions
Topic 5: Functional anatomy of the regions
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.
