Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Describe the ultrastructural and microscopic structure of cells and tissues that form the major organ systems and their relationship to physiological function

Activities:
Students will undertake activities in online and in class settings to examine the structural characteristic of the ultrastructural and microscopic cellular components. This will be complemented with content related to the physiological functioning of the relevant organ systems

02. Describe the structure and function of the major organ systems.

Activities:
Workshop and practical activities will be conducted to apply the concepts studied in relation to the major organs system of the body

03. Describe how the body maintains homeostasis and use examples to demonstrate how it is achieved

Activities:
Homeostatic applications will be demonstrated in practical activities and workshop classes to provide students with the opportunity to apply relevant concepts

04. Complete scientific experiments that examine aspects of human physiology; interpreting data, recognizing methodological issues, identifying the theoretical basis for the experiment, and communicating observations and results

Activities:
Undertaking a variety of practical classes will provide students with an opportunity to develop skills in scientific laboratories where hands on experience will complement the theoretical content from the lectures
