In addition students will participate in activities that promote an understanding of the application of this knowledge. Emphasis is on the development of both knowledge and understanding of a broad range of core concepts such as anatomical organization along with chemical and physical processes. The course will emphasize the relevance of such knowledge to the maintenance of health of the human adult. Students will be expected to use their reading to extend their depth of understanding, participate in laboratory activities and demonstrate ability to utilize resources in the exploration of course content. PREREQUISITESNIL SECTIONATEACHING,LEARNINGANDASSESSMENTCOURSEAIMSHealth professional practice in a range of health disciplines. The disciplines are underpinned and informed by knowledge and understanding of anatomy and physiology. The principal aim of this course is for students to develop introductory knowledge and understanding of normal anatomy and physiology of the adult human body. This course addresses the generic graduate skills enhancing the student's ability to work autonomously and in teams, communicate effectively, problem solve and make critical evaluations as well as develop professional responsibility.
LEARNINGOUTCOMESStudents are expected to: develop a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the basic Students are expected to develop a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the normal structures and functions of the human body. The Core Concepts for this course are as follow: Introductory principles and terminology involved in anatomy and physiology. Students will also study structure and function of the following : Tissues o Integumentary system o Skeletal system o Muscular system o Cardiac system o Vascular system o Hematological system o Lymphatic system o Oncompletionofthiscoursestudentswillbeableto: 1.Demonstrate effective use of medical terminology 2.Demonstrate the ability to identify and label major human anatomical structures. 3.Demonstrate an understanding of the structure and function of gross human anatomy and physiology 4.Demonstrate the ability to describe fundamental concepts associated with physiology of the human body. 5.Demonstrate the ability to apply this knowledge to day‐to‐day activities. CONTENT,ORGANIZATIONANDTEACHINGSTRATEGIESTeaching methods will include a combination of face‐to‐face strategies: interactive lectures, laboratories and/or tutorials. Students are also encouraged to utilize a range of materials including designated self‐ directed activities and worksheets. The teaching methods have been designed to facilitate the development of a strong knowledge base in anatomy and physiology. Students will gain skills in team work and problem solving in the laboratory setting. ContentSummaryWeekly lectures and laboratories and/or tutorials will be held and student attendance is mandatory.

SECTIONBǦADDITIONALCOURSEINFORMATIONPlease refer to FCHS policy manual for additional information. Important Policies: FCHS Assessment Policy
Assessment and academic misconduct policy. AcademicmisconductPlagiarismPlagiarism is taking someone’s thoughts, ideas or work and claiming it as your own. It is an offence against the Moral Rights section of the Copyright Act to use material from any source without indicating the true author or creator of the content. Taking material from the Internet is very easily detected, and could result in disciplinary action. You must sign the Declaration on the Assignment Cover sheet before submission. FCHS has very clear policies in relation to plagiarism see the ‘Assessment and academic misconduct policy’ which can be found in the Policy Library. The School may also undertake a random audit of student’s work using plagiarism‐checking software. Therefore in addition to a paper copy, students can be required to submit an electronic copy (on a floppy disc) of written assignments. Discs should only contain the final copy of the work submitted. Students are advised to retain an electronic copy of all their written assignments for this purpose. A percentage of assessments submitted may be selected for ‘Referencing and Source Audit’ where an audit of references cited and the originality of the work be conducted. If selected you must provide an electronic copy of your assignment, and a hard and/or electronic copy of all references cited in your assignment to the Examiner for inspection. SECTIONC–KEYCOLLEGEINFORMATIONACADEMICMISCONDUCTStudents must conduct their studies at the College honestly, ethically and in accordance with accepted standards of academic conduct. Any form of academic conduct that is contrary to these standards is academic misconduct, for which the FCHS may penalize a student. Specifically it is academic misconduct for a student to: present copied, falsified or improperly obtained data as if it were the result of laboratory work, fieldtrips or other investigatory work; include in the student's individual work material that is the result of significant assistance from another person if that assistance was unacceptable according to the instructions or guidelines for that work; assist another student in the presentation of that student's individual work in a way that is unacceptable according to the instructions or guidelines for that work; cheat; (Cheating is dishonest conduct in assessment);Plagiarize (Plagiarism is knowingly presenting the work or property of another person as if it were their own. Visit the FCHS Policy on Academic Misconductfor further details. PLAGIARISMDETECTIONSOFTWAREThe FCHS is piloting the use of plagiarism detection software. Students should be aware that your Course Convenor may use this software to check submitted assignments. If this course is included in the pilot your Course Convenor will provide more detailed information about how the detection software will be used.
