91400 Human Anatomy and Physiology

6cp; 11 x 2hpw (lectures, online), 8 x 3hpw (practicals), three self-study modules


In this subject students gain excellent basic knowledge in physiology, putting them in good stead for biomedical-oriented subjects in subsequent years. Students learn anatomy (structure) and physiology (function) of the healthy human body. Lectures are complemented by a supportive practical program with a mix of on-campus hands-on activities as well as self-paced online resources. The subject content includes the anatomical organisation of the body and anatomical terms; the gross anatomy of the cardiovascular, endocrine, gastrointestinal, haematological, integumentary (skin), musculoskeletal, nervous, respiratory, and urinary systems. Presentation, library research and report writing skills are also developed.
