Run by School of Medical Sciences
10 Credits or 5 ECTS Credits
Organiser: Ms Vivien Shaw
Overall aims and purpose
The aim of this module is to enable the student to describe the anatomy of the human body using correct anatomical terminology. Students will be able to relate this knowledge to sport science and common sports injuries.
On completion of the module students are expected to be able to: 1. Describe and define the anatomical position and regions of the human body 2. Describe the anatomy of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and respiratory systems. 3. Identify surface markings of key anatomical landmarks for client examination 4. Students will be able to recognise and explain the symptoms of common sports related disease presentations
B (Very Good; 65%): Comprehensive and accurate understanding of the content. C (Good; 55%): Indicating generally accurate understanding of the content.
D (Adequate; 45%): Accurate basic factual information with some errors. E (Poor; 35%): Not met the learning outcomes of the module.
A (Excellent; >74%): Very comprehensive and accurate understanding of the content with evidence of going beyond the core readings and explored the topic in depth.
