Welcome to Embryology in 2016 and thank you for choosing this course! This course will introduce embryological development as a major topic within medical sciences. Students completing this course will have a broad understanding of: human development, some animal models of development and current related research topics. Experts and researchers from within the field contribute to the current course.
Skills and knowledge from this current course will be a great advantage in your own future career. Take the opportunity to discuss potential future Honours projects with these researchers.
In Lectures and Labs I clearly identify any examinable material. A key component of course structure is the revision final lecture, an opportunity to review course material and ask questions about difficult concepts. As part of the course I also encourage you to develop the general scientific skills of critical thinking, analysis and scientific writing. These are important life skills applicable and required for any future (scientific) career.
- ANAT2341 is a second semester course commencing in August 2016.
Please read this manual/outline in conjunction with the following pages on the School of Medical Sciences website:
Two lectures and a single 2 hour tutorial/laboratory per week. Content may vary in organisation from the provided draft timetable dependent upon guest lecturer availability.
Lectures: Mon 13:00 - 14:00 (Weeks:2-9,10-13), Tue 15:00 - 16:00 (Weeks:2-9,10-13)
Laboratory: Fri 13:00 - 15:00 (Weeks:2-9,10-13)
This course will introduce embryological development as a major topic within medical sciences. Students completing this course will have a broad understanding of: human development, some animal models of development and current related research topics. Experts and researchers from within the field contribute to the current course.
- This course will enable students to explore and gain further understanding of embryology both early and systematic through the investigation of development in both humans and animal models.
- The course includes new applications and techniques to study development and the emerging research and reproductive technologies.
This course will enable students to broadly understand abnormalities in development and current applications to medical research. Within the Anatomy program it introduces the developmental origin of organs and tissues as a cornerstone for later study of topics such as Visceral or Functional Anatomy, Neuroanatomy, Cell Biology, Microscopy in Research.
- Individual assessment (ongoing through semester) 20%
- Group project assessment (through semester) 20%
- End of session examination (2 hours duration) 60%
A penalty will apply for late submissions of assessment tasks (10% per day).
- Throughout the semester individual questions and assessments, usually requiring completion within the practical classes or by the following class.
- Includes research paper presentations and online items (explained in detail in the first practical class).
- An online group project worked throughout the semester.
- Due for peer assessment Week 9 (23 Sep).
- Due for final coordinator assessment Week 12 (Fri 21 Oct).
- 2 hr theory exam in UNSW S2 examination time (date TBD).
- 6 short answer essay questions.
- No past papers available, revision lecture with examples (questions/answers) in final week of semester.
The textbooks listed below are recommended for this course and page references are given in each lecture and on the timetable page. Both these textbooks are recent 2015 editions and accessible online through the UNSW Library connection (links are included in online lecture and laboratory materials). There are additional embryology textbooks, and earlier editions of these two, that can also be used please consult course organiser as to suitability.
