Did this during COVID-19 and though I don't mind lots of content, it's one of the most disorganised units out there. Made me hate anatomy and find it harder than it really was. Lecturers were quite aloof and the closed book exams were a complete nightmare. Only do it if you're REALLY passionate about physiotherapy, exercise etc.

Going into my first year of university straight out of high school, I was worried about falling behind in my studies. But this unit was truly a delight to study, and considering the sudden change to online teaching due to COVID-19, the unit coordinators did an amazing job in quickly providing online resources (videos, Zoom tutorials, drop-ins etc.) to supplement the practical classes. While Zoom classes and recorded lectures can never top the quality of face-to-face teaching and practicals, the lecturers and tutors should be commended for their hard work and dedication to make sure every single student was on top of their work. On another note, this unit has got to be one of the best units in the entire usyd curriculum. For a first year student, anatomy can seem really daunting, especially with all the new names and terms you have to learn and remember. But it's entirely possible to get really high marks if you stay on top of the content and keep up to date with the Facebook group posts. Considering the amount of stress placed on the university to transition to online teaching in such a short amount of time, this unit did a commendable job. 5 stars for sure.

Content heavy but very rewarding when you get the learning down! The teachers are great (my tutor was Cliffton). With full class attendance and regular review it's possible to get great marks.

A massive amount of content to learn and it's definitely quite disorienting for a first timer. However, it's really interesting to learn about musculoskeletal anatomy even if it's hard. Labs involve cadavers but they're very useful. Lecturers are generally good and helpful. Tutors in labs are also helpful and quite knowledgeable. In short, a very interesting (although somewhat hard) subject which forms the backbone of physios, exercise and sport scientists and exercise physiologists.

FMA is one of the more difficult subjects (especially since it's such a shock to suddenly have to know all these anatomy terms you've probably never come across before!), but in saying that, you can still do well if you keep up and review all your lectures/notes each week! Prep as much as you can for your pracs, to get the most of out them - your prac exams make up quite a bit (about 70%) of your final mark, so it's important to keep up and be good with identifying everything you can!

I went into FMA thinking that it would be very challenging just because of what everyone had previously told me. And they were right, it was quite content heavy however it was really interesting to know how your body works. At times it can be dry and difficult however if you consistently study, there's no reason why you shouldn't do well. The labs are definitely worth going to as they will help you immensely, especially for your identification exams. It's always helpful to revise the lecture before your pracs just to know what you're supposed to be doing. But the lab demonstrators (or at least my one) was extremely helpful and went out of her way to help us understand the content as much as possible. Overall it was a great subject, with a lot of relevance to my degree.

Very interesting subject, however was quite content

FMA is a challenging introduction to anatomy that covers everything from muscles to histology of bones and complex functional movement. Taught as a two hour lecture block and a three hour lab, the structure works well, the labs are definitely worth attending as the tutors break down all of the complex stuff into bite size chunks. Great subject that was really interesting
