The course examines, support and movement, and human physiological processes and their integration and control with particular focus on the maintenance of normal body function. The course encourages students to demonstrate an application of biological science knowledge. An integrated whole body approach provides interprofessional learning opportunities and allows scrutiny of structural and physiological changes across the lifespan. This course is open to all health professions for inter professional learning. Topics include organisation of the human body from chemical and cellular basics to body systems; the maintenance of homeostasis; the structure and function of the musculoskeletal system; the structure and the major integrative functions of the nervous, cardiovascular, respiratory and reproductive systems.
