An organ systems approach is used in this course to study anatomy and physiology and to explain how this relates to health and common pathologies and their pharmacological treatments in the context of disease, trauma and exercise. This course provides further, in depth information from six topics that were undertaken in BIO1203 Human Anatomy and Physiology 1. The topics covered in BIO1206 Human Anatomy and Physiology 2 include cell physiology and the muscular, cardiovascular, respiratory, nervous and endocrine systems. These topics will be reviewed and extended to topics on cutting edge and current research. This course contains a highly recommended residential school for external students and highly recommended on-campus laboratories or practical classes for on-campus students (non-attendance will mean the student misses both an element for assessment preparation and an element of assessment).
