DISABILITY AND LEARNING SUPPORT SERVICES The University offers a range of services and supports for students with a disability and it is important that these are negotiated early in the semester. Students who require alternative arrangements such as Special Exam Arrangements and assessment or study support should discuss their needs with the Disability Services Officer and/or the Course Coordinator as soon as possible. The University offers a range of academic skills services to assist students with the development of writing and study skills. Workshops on topics such as critical thinking, referencing and essay writing are held most weeks throughout the semester. PowerPoints used in the workshops and self help documents are also readily available on the portal (located on the entry "Welcome" page, click on the "Academic skills" link within the "My Organisations" menu). Students can also make an appointment with an academic skills adviser at Student Services for one-on-one assistance with study and academic writing skills.

COURSE DESCRIPTION TO BE USED FOR STUDENT HANDBOOK The course takes a systemic approach to physiology and related anatomy, concentrating on the interrelationship of structure and function, the hierarchy of structural organisation and the maintenance of homeostasis at rest. The physiology of the systems is studied from the cellular level, through tissues and organs to the system level. It prepares the student for further study, looking at perturbations to the systems in exercise and in disease states. LEARNING OUTCOMES USC Graduate Attributes Learning Outcomes On completion of this course students should be able to: Laboratory Class Assessment Learning/Assessment Tasks Physiology Theory End-ofConcept Quizzes semester Assignment exam
