10 cp
Prerequisites: Nil
Incompatibles: BIOL125 Human Biology 1, BIOL126 Human Biology 2, BIOL124 Human Body in Health and Disease 1, BIOL204 Human Body in Health and Disease 2, BIOL128 The Human Body (I)
Teaching Organisation: Teaching and learning strategies will include lectures, tutorials, web-based learning and science laboratory activities. Students will be expected to take responsibility for their learning and to participate actively within group activities, demonstrating respect for the individual as an independent learner.

To function successfully as a health professional, it is essential that one has a thorough understanding of the principles of anatomy and physiology in the healthy individual. This fundamental knowledge then underpins the development of an extended understanding of anatomy and physiology in the individual's chosen profession. This unit introduces students to the normal functioning of major body systems; microscopic, regional and systemic anatomy and physiology; and the principles of pharmacology. The aim of this unit is to provide a firm basis for further studies of the human body in health and disease.
