Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, students will be introduced to the anatomical organisation of the body, the basics of cell structure and function, and the major tissue types. The fundamentals of the nervous and endocrine systems will then be explored in the context of mechanisms of physiological control. This information will provide the foundation for the study of the major organ systems of the body which includes the respiratory, cardiovascular, renal, digestive, reproductive and regulation of acid-base balance. The subject will conclude with the basics of nutrition and metabolism which integrates many of the topics covered throughout the subject. In addition, students may be offered the opportunity to engage in guided independent learning throughout the semester to extend their level of knowledge in the topic areas described above.
