Anatomy & Physiology for Health Professionals 1 (HEALT1111)

This unit is one of two units that provide foundational knowledge of human anatomy and physiology. In this unit, the biological basis of human health and the working of the human body will be explored. The major themes of study relate to organisation of the body and explores anatomy and physiology from cells to tissues to organ systems. The unit examines, support and movement, and human physiological processes and their integration and control with particular focus on the maintenance of normal body function. The unit 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 unit 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 musculoskele al system; the structure and the major integrative functions of the nervous, cardiovascular, respiratory and reproductive systems.
