HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY AND RESEARCH
Credit points: 15
In this subject, you will explore aspects of advanced human physiology, focusing on general physiological principles and their applications, and recent research findings. Furthermore, you complete a discipline-specific research module in which they explore what science is, the practices of science, including the methods and tools that scientists use, and the status of knowledge that science produces. This exploration forms the foundation for a team-based prescribed research experience in which you will emulate a number of roles of a practising scientist. 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.
