Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

describe the introductory concepts related to the structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) of cells, integumentary and musculoskeletal systems

interpret laboratory data and apply introductory anatomy and physiology concepts to scientific findings

define basic anatomy and physiological mechanism(s) linked to the normal functioning of the digestive, immune, cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, reproductive body systems and to human development

communicate knowledge of human anatomy and physiology as appropriate to the health care profession
