Biomedical Sciences for Osteopathy 4, expands students’ knowledge of anatomical and biomechanical principles relevant to osteopathy. Students will apply theoretical concepts of biomedical sciences to the lower limb and review common musculoskeletal conditions presenting in osteopathic practice.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
Within the workshop environment, students will work collaboratively in small groups to explore a clinical case scenario relating to the lower limb and analyse the related anatomy and biomechanics. Following this formative in-class activity, students are assessed individually on the key elements of this case and the related musculoskeletal conditions in a worksheet. The multi-station practical examination requires students to identify and elaborate upon the anatomical structures of the lower limb. The full scope of the HBO1004 curriculum will be examined within the theory paper, which is scaffolded by formative quizzes throughout the unit.
Students will be provided with an up-to-date reading list via the VU Collaborate system.
