This second course on the human body will continue the study of the structure and function of organ systems in the body during the lifecycle. Modules will cover the anatomy, histology and physiology of organ systems responsible for the internal body coordination and control (nervous and endocrine systems), the organ systems responsible for body defence (lymphatic and immune systems), and normal human development and aging. A further module covers principles of microbiology and the roles of micro-organisms in human infection.
An online learning format will include lectures, laboratory sessions, online work and workshops.
