Anatomy for Biomedical Science

Course code HUBS1109Units 10Level 1000Faculty of Health and MedicineSchool of Biomedical Sciences and Pharmacy

This course aims to provide students with an understanding of the anatomical structures 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.
