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:||GA1||GA2||GA3||GA4||GA5||GA6||GA7|
|1||demonstrate an ability to identify thoracic, abdominal and pelvic visceral anatomical features|
|2||describe and explain the neural and circulatory supply of these viscera|
|3||describe the layered tissue relations of these viscera|
|4||understand and describe the inter-relationship of structure and functions of these viscera.|
