Combined teaching of undergraduate and graduate Musculoskeletal Functional Anatomy will take place in this unit.
Learning outcomesOn successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Identify musculoskeletal structures of the human body including bones, joints, ligaments, special structures, and deep and superficial muscles (Origin, Insertion, Nerve, Action);
2. Observe and palpate the major surface landmarks of musculoskeletal anatomy;
3. Identify, demonstrate and evaluate all actions of the spine and peripheral joints (movements available - AROM);
4. Identify, demonstrate and evaluate passive range of motion and resisted strength testing of the spine and peripheral joints;
5. Identify both the synergists and antagonists involved in coordinated functional activities of human movement;
6. Provide basic prescription of strength and range of motion exercises.

Advanced Functional Anatomy 8279/8280G. Lab Manual – Musculoskeletal Anatomy. This lab manual is essential. It will be available on Canvas for you to access electronically or to download and print (printing is recommended as you will need to take it into the lab with you).
Note: The descriptions of muscle names, actions, origins, insertions and nerve supply described in this lab manual will be what is required and expected on the lab exam. This information will be provided in the lab manual as well as a 'structures you need to know' list that is also provided on canvas.
Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
To pass the unit students must attempt the bone quiz, both lab exams and gain at least 50% overall in the unit.
There are 10 formative weekly quizzes in total. Quizzes will not be marked, but each quiz unlocks the content for the following week. Students will get unlimited attempts but must score 100% before progressing. See Canvas for weekly due dates. The quiz content will be related to the information covered in the practical, lecture and lab of that week. Answers will be released after the successful completion of each quiz.
Students have a responsibility to uphold University standards on ethical scholarship. Good scholarship involves building on the work of others and use of others' work must be acknowledged with proper attribution made. Cheating, plagiarism, and falsification of data are dishonest practices that contravene academic values. Refer to the University's Student Charter for more information.
To enhance understanding of academic integrity, all students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) at least once during their course of study. You can access this module within UCLearn (Canvas) through the 'Academic Integrity and Avoiding Plagiarism' link in the Study Help site.
Use of Text-Matching Software
The University of Canberra uses text-matching software to help students and staff reduce plagiarism and improve understanding of academic integrity. The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
Students are expected to follow a weekly routine:
1. Complete the weekly reading
2. Attend the weekly lecture
3. Prepare for Lab classes with their structures list and a study plan
4. Attend Lab classes with the appropriate PPE
5. Attend and participate in practical classes with appropriate clothing
6. Complete the weekly quiz after their practical class
Optional: Attend a Peer Assisted Learning class for study assistance
Inclusion and engagement
If you have registered with Inclusion and Engagement you are encouraged to contact the unit convener early in the semester to ensure that any reasonable adjustments can be put in place. This will allow you more time to complete the Bone Quiz and Lab Exams.
It is expected that students will watch the online lectures before coming to the lab classes. It is expected that students will attend the weekly labs and practicals as there is no better way to absorb the unit content or prepare for the assessment items. If unable to attend a scheduled assessment, students must advise the Unit Convener with appropriate documentation as soon as possible. Announcements made on Canvas must be monitored every week.
Required IT skills
Students are assumed to have basic IT skills so that they can access Canvas content.
Lab coats will be required for all lab sessions. Lab coats can be purchased at the UCU Shop. It is not anticipated that students will have any other additional costs other than those normally accrued in the pursuit of study such as purchase of textbooks and extensive photocopying.
Work placement, internships or practicums
