  • Overview

    The aim of this unit is to provide grounding in the principles of human anatomy and physiology. Following an introduction to the structure of the cell and the organisation of tissues, each of the major systems that constitute the human body are examined by the integrated study of their anatomy and physiology.

    Learning Outcomes
    On completion of this unit, you should be able to:
    1. Identify an extensive range of normal human structures using the appropriate anatomical terminology.
    2. Demonstrate knowledge of the hierarchy of structural organisation that exists in the human body from the level of molecules to organ systems.
    3. Competently discuss the complementary relationships that exist between tissue/organ structure and the functions of each of the major organ systems.
    4. Demonstrate knowledge of the basic physiological processes that underlie the functions of the major organ systems.
    5. Clearly explain how the functions of each major organ system contribute to homeostasis and the maintenance of life.
