Syllabus

The unit will cover the following topics: Cellular structure, homeostasis and epithelial cells. The following physiological systems will be covered: Endocrine system including the major endocrine glands and the effects of their hormones. Circulatory system which covers blood and vessels as well as heart anatomy and physiology; regulation of cardiovascular system will also be covered. Respiratory system: respiratory tract anatomy; ventilation and oxygenation; respiratory regulation. Digestive system: anatomy of the gastrointestinal tract and associated structures; physiology of digestion and absorption. Urinary system: anatomy of the urinary system; physiology of urine formation. Reproductive system: male and female reproductive anatomy and physiology. Emphasis will be placed on the inter-connection and relationship between structure and function at every level of organisation and the importance in maintaining homeostasis.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Define and correctly use anatomical and physiological terminology;

2. Recognise and describe the macroscopic and microscope structure of the following body systems: Cardiovascular, endocrine, respiratory, gastrointestinal, urinary and reproductive systems;

3. Interpret and explain how the above systems function and interact with each other; and
