Syllabus

This unit will provide a theoretical overview of the human body. This unit will introduce the student to gross anatomy and will provide familiarity of anatomical and physiological terminology. This unit will encompass the physiological foundations and relevant anatomical structures of the human body systems, including: muscular, skeletal, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, respiratory, urinary, endocrine, immune, integumentary, nervous system and reproductive systems. Within this unit the interactions between the physiological systems will be explored to provide a comprehensive understanding human functioning and homeostatic control.

Learning Outcomes

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

1. Appropriately utilise anatomical and physiological terms;

2. Differentiate, compare and contrast the function of the following body systems: cells, connective tissue, bone tissue, muscle tissue, nervous, gastrointestinal, immune, cardiovascular, respiratory, urinary, endocrine, integumentary, and reproductive systems;

3. Identify the cells, tissues and organs involved in the body systems presented within this unit; and

4. Integrate their knowledge of the anatomical and physiological systems presented throughout the unit to: a) provide a thorough understanding of homeostatic control and b) be able to explain and distinguish the overlapping nature and complexity of the human body.
