Human Biology - Human Anatomy & Physiology (IA) Outline

Acquire and deepen your knowledge in Human Anatomy and Physiology. This course provides you with the knowledge basis to a career in Human Health and Wellbeing. You will understand what is a human body, how it works and which factors determine health.

This course is designed for people working or looking to work in the health care industry, or for people who want to have the basic knowledge of human anatomy and physiology.

This course is the FOUNDATION for understanding the human body; and the first step toward further studies or a career in health services or fitness industries. It provides credit toward qualifications in many things, including naturopathy, fitness, health etc.


Lesson Structure

There are 6 lessons in this course:

  1. Cells & Tissues 
  2. The Skeleton 
  3. The Muscular System 
  4. The Nervous System
  5. Digestion & Excretion
  6. Physiological Systems

Each lesson culminates in an assignment which is submitted to the school, marked by the school's tutors and returned to you with any relevant suggestions, comments, and if necessary, extra reading.


Aims

  • To explain the human body at a microscopic level, including the structure and function of cells, tissues and membranes.
  • Explain features of the human skeletal system.
  • Describe the human muscular system, in terms of structure and basic function.
  • Explain the human nervous system, in terms of structure and basic functions.
  • Explain different physiological systems of digestion and excretion in the body.
  • Explain different physiological systems of the body.
