Anatomy for Biomedical Science
|Course code HUBS1109||Units 10||Level 1000||Faculty of Health and MedicineSchool of Biomedical Sciences and Pharmacy|
This course will provide students with an overview of the structure of the human body. It consists of a series of lectures and laboratories covering functional anatomy of the human body including the musculoskeletal system, nervous system, cardiovascular system, thorax, abdomen and pelvis. Areas emphasised are those that will prepare students for a career in research that focuses on the major body systems. The course will also prepare students for subsequent careers in any of the health science disciplines.
