HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY AND RESEARCH

HBS3HPR

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, you will explore aspects of advanced human physiology, focusing on general physiological principles and their applications, and recent research findings. You will analyse, synthesise and evaluate scientific research findings published in peer reviewed journal articles, and communicate to scientific peers through a written literature review. You will be guided and supported through this process by a core teaching team, as well as an advisor who is an expert in your chosen area of interest. You will participate in a Journal Club with your advisor, and peers who are writing their literature review on the same topic. The content and skills-related work described complement a graduate employability module in which students evaluate their current level of graduate capabilities and attributes and relate this to preparation for a variety of Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) careers.
