In this unit, students gain knowledge in systemic physiology. The unit is divided into two modules. Module one focuses on the study of the human nervous system and skeletal muscle. Module two focuses on the human cardiovascular system and blood.

At the completion of this unit, students will be able to:

  1. Independently access and assimilate credible knowledge of basic physiological principles relating to the peripheral nervous system, muscular system and cardiovascular system
  2. Use independently acquired credible knowledge of the physiological principles in solving given real-world physiologically based problems
  3. Whilst working independently and collaboratively in an interdisciplinary team, complete a physiologically well-reasoned evidence based test on the outcomes of a defined case study.
  • Group Project — 2 x 125-word article (30%)
