|Prerequisites||HMS101 Human Anatomy 1; HMS102 Biochemistry & Histology|
|Description||This unit builds on HMS101 Human Anatomy 1 to broaden and deepen students’ knowledge and understanding of the regional and surface anatomy of human physiology. This unit also lays a foundation for the clinical diagnosis and application of acupuncture. Regional and surface anatomy introduces students to upper limbs, lower limbs, neck, back, thoracic and abdomen.
In human physiology, students advance their study of the structure and physiological functions of the 11 core systems initially introduced in HMS101. These include the skeletal, muscular, integumentary (surface anatomy), digestive, cardiovascular, endocrine, respiratory, urinary, reproductive, lymphatic and nervous systems. Emphasis in this unit is placed on homoeostatic control mechanisms in each system and the integration of the systems in the body.
|Learning outcomes||On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
|Assessment||Formative Practical Test (15%)
Physiology Quiz (15%)
Practical Test (30%)
Final Examination (40%)
|Prescribed Textbooks/Readings||* The prescribed and recommended readings are subject to annual review.
