- 6 points
|Semester 2||UWA (Perth)||Face to face|
- The modules in this unit equip students with knowledge relating to fundamental medical sciences in preparation for understanding the normal and pathological structures and processes in podiatry. The unit provides a high challenge, high support educational environment. It encourages deeper understanding and learning and helps students cross the threshold from undergraduate to postgraduate. It also provides a transformative educational environment.
- Students are able to (1) understand the structure-function relationship of normal body systems; (2) describe the structure and function of the renal system; (3) describe the anatomy and physiology of the endocrine system; (4) describe the anatomy and physiology of the gastrointestinal system; (5) describe the anatomy and physiology of the respiratory system; and (6) understand and use the scientific method and a critical approach to evidence.
- Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) mid-semester examination; (2) end-of-semester examination (composed of a theory [40 per cent] and practical [20 per cent] component); and (3) online laboratory quizzes. Further information is available in the unit outline.
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
