Our Anatomy & Physiology course has been designed to provide a more in depth understanding of the human body and the accompanying physiological process that allow for its optimal functioning. As well as revisiting and expanding on some basic principles such as the skeletal and muscular system, this course provides detailed explanations of some more complex aspects of anatomy such as the heart, the brain and spinal cord and the autonomic nervous system. This course also provides detailed aspects of a number of the physiological functions that occur in the human body.

Course media


With 206 bones and more than 600 muscles in the human body, along with an intricate network of blood vessels, nerves and other integrated systems, the human body is a complex organism. Anatomy is the study of form and physiology the study of function. As form and function are connected, the study of both anatomy and physiology are intrinsically linked, and therefore studied together. In this anatomy and physiology course the student will develop comprehension of the structure and function of the human body, of the inter-relation of the body systems within the human organism and develop an understanding of the principles of human anatomy and physiology.
