This course is restricted to students enrolled in the program 3870 - Bachelor of Health and Exercise Science. It extends on the teachings of BIOS1201 and HESC1501 by providing Health and Excercise Science students with an introduction to the structure of the human body, based on a study of prosected specimens. It complements the teachings of ANAT1510 (focusing on gross rather than micro anatomy) and lays the foundations for the other compulsory Stage 2 Health and Exercise Science Anatomy courses (ANAT3131 & ANAT3141) by focusing on the general topography and gross anatomy of the human musculoskeletal, nervous, respiratory, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal and genitourinary systems. Teaching is comprised of lectures and practicals with lectures focusing on the structure and function of the human body systems, and the laboratory classes involving the study of wet and plastinated prosected specimens, models and radiographs. Assessment consists of one theory and one practical exam held during the formal end of session exam period.
