Improvements seem to have been made since last year (see below). I'd give the physiology 5 stars, the lecturer, Rob White, is friendly and very clear. Unlike last year the physiology was not rushed at all, he told us that the number of physiology lectures had been dramatically increased this year (from 9 to 18) in response to student feedback so it's great that they are trying to make things better and we reaped the benefits. He made what you need to know very clear which was appreciated. The same cannot be said for anatomy. The lecturer, Amanda (or Dr Meyer as she liked to call herself!) was extremely enthusiastic and her exam short answer questions were really easy but that's where the positives end. She had a disjointed teaching style that was hard to follow. At the start of each lecture she'd go into excruciating detail at a snail's pace, kept giving random anatomical facts and then ended up rushing through twenty minutes worth of cotent in five minutes at the end of lectures because she'd run out of time. Her lecture slides would be full of stuff she never even went through (even when it was in bold) but if you asked her what you needed to know she'd get shitty. She then asked multiple choice questions about things she never mentioned or even had on the lecture slides once (I swear!). She seems to be an improvement on last year's lecturer but that's not saying much judging from what I've heard.

This unit is very content heavy but nonetheless extremely interesting when you apply the situations to everyday life. The labs really help to reinforce the anatomy aspect of the course which is otherwise hard to visualise in your head when just reading from paper. However, the physiology topics contained a lot of information and I found it quite difficult learning both anatomy and physiology side by side. You kind of learn bits and pieces of a puzzle which you end up having to put together by yourself at the end.

The physiology side of the course is fairly difficult (and a bit rushed) with a lot of memorising required. The anatomy side has fairly easy content - that said, you'll have a different anatomy lecturer than we had in 2017, so it wouldn't surprise me if they bring up the expected standard of knowledge a bit. Overall, it's a very interesting unit with great labs - I absolutely loved it. A lot of us in the sem 1, 2017 cohort were upset about the immense disorganisation of the unit and a very difficult first test (which ended up being scaled very highly in our favour anyway), but when the IMED coordinators realised how dodgy the unit was and how much everyone was struggling, they put in a big effort to get feedback and improve it. This was the first time the unit has been offered, so some hiccups were to be expected, so don't be too put off by what you hear from past students - pretty sure it will be better for you.

Avinash(our lecturer) abandoning ship, poor organisation of tests and lectures (practice test put up night before actual test) and an extremely difficult course do not go well together
