Biomedical Science for Osteopathy 1 introduces students to fundamental principles of biomedical sciences relevant to osteopathy. These fundamental principles include anatomical principles, physiology of cells and organ systems, and the body’s self-regulatory mechanisms. The knowledge obtained in this unit will underpin the learning of biomedical sciences applied to the head, trunk and limbs in successive units.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
The first quiz aims to consolidate fundamental knowledge of content presented in the first week.
Through the individual worksheet, students will have the opportunity to develop their knowledge of anatomy and physiology, and relate this to clinical scenarios.
The multi-station practical examination requires students to identify anatomical structures and key steps in physiological processes. The examination will consist of multiple stations. Each station will have associated questions relating to material presented in workshop and laboratory sessions.
The final assessment is the Final Quiz. The full scope of the HBO1001 curriculum will be examined within this assessment, which is scaffolded by formative quiz opportunities throughout the unit content.
Students will be provided with an up-to-date reading list via the VU Collaborate system.
