Reviews

Human locomotor system is a very interesting subject. Unlike second year subject where it was observing cadavers and stating which nerve, artery, vein, muscle this is, this subject was more hands on, for example you were carrying out dissections. At first it might be a little bit overwhelming, but with the help of your demonstrators and coordinators (Rex, Michelle and Jacinta), it became more manageable. The dissection was my favourite part. My tip is, to prepare for the dissections such as fill in tables such as what nerve innervates this muscle and where is its origin and insertion, in order to make the most of the dissection/workshop classes as it is 3 hours which is pretty gruelling (especially the last hour). The lecturers are really good. Simon Murray was probably my favourite (lecturer for the lower limb), he was really passionate and broke down the lower limb so it was easy to understand. The guest lecturers were good, my favourite was the surgeon and the radiologist as they showed us how anatomy is used in a clinical perspective. The MSTs were pretty challenging, a lot of the questions were very application based + there were questions that wasn’t really covered in the lecture as much as other concepts. Exam 1 was really hard, but exam 2 was Ok.

Content of this subject is super interesting and it allows you to deep dive into mainly the arms and legs. The weekly practicals are fantastic with the opportunity to do regular dissections. The MSTs are reasonable and they do help you stay on track with the subject so that by the time the exam comes around, you've already been actively revising. The first exam with short answer questions is hard and they don't really prepare you for it that much which makes it more difficult. The second exam is easier but still challenging. You spend a lot of time memorising so much content and then they always ask about the tiny little details that they spent 2 minutes telling you about.

This subject really goes into depth about human anatomy. Although the content was difficult and abundant, the lecturers and tutors made sure there were enough resources to keep you on track in your learning. The practical classes especially helped to apply your knowledge of the content and recognise that not everything is perfect as the textbook says and that part of learning anatomy is being coignisant that it can be different in each individual

This subject definitely goes into depth with human locomotor anatomy and this makes it quite challenging. However, I thought the main lecturer (Kate) was clear about how exam questions would be asked (she gave lots of hints as to what content was really important to know). The subject also offers anatomy dissections which was a really great experience and I felt privileged to have gone through that. A range of experts in anatomy from Orthopaedic surgeon and radiologist to anatomical researchers came in to give lectures to us which I found really engaging as well. Overall, I felt no regrets in choosing to do an anatomy major after doing this subject as it was challenging but fairly assessed and well organised.

This subject was really challenging but was also extremely fun and engaging. If you love anatomy I definitely recommend it. However, I kind of went into this subject blind, not knowing a lot about how the anatomy major subjects are. There is no practice material available for assessments at all. We are directed to the prac notes which have minimal questions that are similar to those on the MSTs and exams. The first MST was a big shock, but looking back on it, it doesn't seem that it was that difficult. My mistake was that I did not focus on things the lecturers may have mentioned for 2 minutes and instead tried to focus on the bigger picture/ higher yield topics. I soon found out that in anatomy they like to test us on things we may have learnt or built on outside of lectures. My biggest tip is to search for online resources that can help you revise as there are heaps out there, you cannot wait for the lecturers to provide any as there are none. The first exam was more challenging for me than the second exam. The practical component was not that difficult and the pictures were often quite straightforward, especially if you have exposed yourself to some diagrams in an atlas in your revision. To do well in this subject it takes work and a lot of preparation (so keep this in mind if you have a lot of content-heavy subjects in the same semester). Ultimately in anatomy once you learn the content you can receive full marks, especially in multiple-choice questions (such as the MSTs and the second exam). The answers are never going to be ambiguous or subjective once you have learnt the content, it is just memorising it that is the difficult part (for that I would recommend again an atlas and anki).

Definitely a huge step up from 2nd year ANAT, considering I took it semester 1 the previous year it felt like I had to constantly relearn everything I learnt in second year. Kate is a pretty good coordinator and it felt like she was really invested in the subject and teaching us all about human locomotor. The guests lecturers were ok, but the highlight for me was definitely the radiology guest lecturer, he was SUPER engaging and funny (albeit did go overtime a little bit...). The dissections were really cool and interesting, as all the cadavers had different variations and probably the most exciting part is seeing a knee replacement lol. However..... the assessments.... oh my goddd........ MST1 was so bad, I don't even know the average but I've never had such a relatable moment coming out of Wilson Hall with everyone and feeling like I did so badly... And I did. MST2 was better and okay, and I feel like it was due to the fact it was entirely lower limb, whereas in the first MST there was back, neuroanatomy, and upper limb. The exam is also quite hard, and despite being in person was really really quite difficult. Overall, I'm glad I took it but my grade isn't glad ahahahahah :)

By far one of the best subjects completed in my undergraduate studies. The professor at the time was excellent, clearly was an expert and examined fairly.

MSTs were fairly easy and it's really achievable to score well in. The content itself is also very interesting, and there's a lot of focus and a depth of information taught about each section of the body - thighs, lower leg etc. However, despite scoring well throughout the semester, the MSTs are only worth 20%, with the 2 exams being weighted 40% each. That's 80% of the grade for this subject being based of the exam, which in my opinion really skewed and affected my grade for this subject.

My favourite subject yet! I knew I would enjoy it before we started, but the lecturers, workshops and dissection pracs all made it an even better learning experience. If you found second year anatomy pretty fun, Locomotor will definitely be an enjoyable subject for you. Also, yes it's hard but it's really not that hard to get a good score (if you truly enjoy going deep into anatomy). MSTs were a lot easier than most people expected & the final exams had no surprises.

A tough course but informative, relevant especially for those interested in pursuing medicine. The lecturers are engaging and the resources are fantastic. It is well-organized and the practicals are definitely a highlight of the subject. Although confronting at first, the opportunity to participate in cadaveric dissections is rare for undergraduate students. The student: tutor ratio is good. Keeping up with the content, engaging fully in practicals and forming a study group with your friends is the best way to keep your head above the water in this subject.
