Integrates the basic biomedical sciences (functional, clinical anatomy, biomechanics, tissue mechanics, histology & embryology) in preparation for the acquisition of clinical patient assessment skills of the lumbo-pelvic and lower limb regions.
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.
