This course will provide students with an introduction to the organisation and control of the human body from cells to the entire organism with a focus on the clinical environment. Topics will cover the cellular basis of life, tissues, major body systems and control mechanisms. The relationships between anatomy (structure), physiology (functioning) and biochemistry (molecular interactions) of the human body will be explored. This course is particularly valuable to students wishing to study nursing or midwifery.
