Introduction to functional anatomy of the human body, with a focus on biomechanics of normal human movement. Examples in sport and exercise are used to integrate structure and function.
ANAT101 is an introduction to functional anatomy of the human body, with a focus on biomechanics of normal human movement. Examples in sport and exercise are used to integrate structure and function of tissues and organ systems (musculoskeletal, neuroanatomy, cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, renal, reproductive) of the human body.

- Learning Outcomes
By the end of ANAT101 you will have:
- An understanding of anatomical terminology
- Detailed knowledge of the bones, joints and associated tissues of the human body
- An understanding of muscles of the human body, and movements produced by these muscles at each joint
- Knowledge of key organ systems, neurological and vascular structures in the human body
- Demonstrated the ability to integrate the structure and function of the musculoskeletal system as a basis for understanding biomechanics and human movement
