6cp; 10x 2hrs (lectures, online), 3hrs (practical laboratory) (as per week-by-week program and in certain weeks the practical is supplemented with an online activity)


In this subject students gain excellent basic knowledge in physiology, putting them in good stead for medical-oriented subjects in subsequent years and potential entrance into the medical and dentistry fields. Students learn the anatomy (structure) and physiology (function) of the healthy human body. Lectures are complemented by a supportive practical program. The subject content includes: homeostasis; the anatomical organisation of the body and anatomical terms; and the cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, endocrine, nervous, respiratory, gastrointestinal, urinary and haematological systems. Presentation and report writing skills are also developed.
