2. Demonstrate a detailed knowledge of the above systems function and how they interact with the rest of the body to maintain homeostasis using anatomical and physiological terminology;
3. Identify bony landmarks, ligaments, tendons, muscles and blood supply of the lower limb, pelvic girdle, trunk, head, neck, upper limb and pectoral girdle;
4. Describe muscle actions at above mentioned sites; and
5. Research and discuss common neuromuscular conditions.

Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
All assessments are required to be submitted electronically, unless exceptions are granted by the associate dean (education) for the relevant faculty. A coversheet should only be submitted only when an assessment cannot be submitted electronically (e.g. a photograph, a model, a practical assessment), see section 4.4 Assessment Policy and Procedures.
Late submissions: Students submitting work late will receive a reduction in available marks of 5% per day (e.g. if an assessment was submitted three days late a mark of 70% would be reduced to 55%, or put another way, if a student was awarded 21 out of 30 and submitted three days late their mark would be reduced to 16.5 out of 30), up to a maximum of seven days at which time the assignment will no longer be accepted, unless there are approved extenuating circumstances. Detailed information is found in section 9.12 of the Assessment Policy and Procedures. Staff wishing to deviate from this policy will need to state the deviation here (e.g. no late submissions accepted).
To apply for extensions or deferrals, students must complete the appropriate form (available on Canvas) and upload to the correct dropbox with the corresponding documentation. Students are to then check the dropbox. Submission marked "completed" are deemed to be approved.
All grades will undergo a moderation process as required by University Policy.
Use of text matching software
Students must attempt ALL assessment items to pass this unit.
It is expected that students will work through the online component of this course in a timely fashion.
It is expected that students will attend all laboratory classes.
Required IT skills
It is expected that students will possess UC IT entry skills. Students are expected to use the Canvas site for this unit to access all of the required materials and to submit the Graduate Assignment.
Work placement, internships or practicums
Students will be required to complete a laboratory induction prior to laboratory classes. Students are expected to follow laboratory rules outlined in the Laboratory Induction document at all times. Failure to do so will result in exclusion from the laboratory.
