Anatomy & Physiology for Health Professionals 2 (HEALT1112)

This course is one of two courses that provide foundational knowledge of human anatomy and physiology relevant to Healthcare Professions. In this course, the biological basis of human health and the working of the human body will be explored. The major themes of study explore anatomy and physiology from cells to tissues to organ systems to a whole body approach to relate body defences, integration and control through hormonal processes and maintenance and development of normal function through nutrition and fluid balance. The course encourages students to demonstrate an application of biological science knowledge. An integrated whole body approach provides inter-professional 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: the structure and function of the integumentary and lymphatic systems with emphasis on their roles in immunity; the structure and function of the endocrine, digestive and urinary systems; metabolism; the special senses; growth and development; genetics and hereditary and neural transmission processes..
