EHR119 Anatomy & Physiology 1 (8)

This subject provides students with an introduction to the anatomical structure and physiological function of the human body. Emphasis is placed on students developing an understanding of anatomy and physiology from an atomic level through to the integration of various systems for the maintenance of health and wellbeing. It is compulsory for students studying online to attend a 2 day residential school for this subject.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject, students should:
  • be able to define anatomy and physiology and describe the scope of each discipline;
  • be able to identify the chemical and cellular components of the human body and explain how these components regulate integrated bodily function;
  • be able to outline the characteristics of different tissue types and how these characteristics relate to function;
  • be able to outline the anatomy of the skeletal system using appropriate terminology and the physiological process associated with bone development, growth and remodelling;
  • be able to describe the different joint structures that support movement throughout the body;
  • be able to outline the structure and function of the integumentary system;
  • be able to describe the anatomy of the muscular system and the physiological properties associated with muscular contraction;
  • be able to identify the anatomical sub-divisions of the central and peripheral nervous systems;
  • be able to describe the neurophysiological processes associated with communication within the body.
Syllabus
The subject will cover the following topics:
  • Overview of the study of human anatomy and physiology and the scope of these disciplines;
  • The human organism and levels of organisation;
  • Structure and function of cells and tissues in the human body;
  • Anatomical structures of the skeletal system and physiological processes associated with bone development and remodelling;
  • Articulations (joints) within the human body and their structure to facilitate movement;
  • Anatomy of cardiac, smooth and skeletal muscle and physiological processes associated with muscular contraction;
  • Identification of skeletal muscles within the human body;
  • Anatomy and physiology of the integumentary system including skin, glands, nails and hair;
  • Anatomy of the central and peripheral nervous system and the role of the nervous system in communication within the body.
Residential School
This subject contains a 2 day Compulsory Residential School.

It is compulosry for Online Study students to attend a two (2) day COMPULSORY Residential School scheduled during the Residential School period. This Residential School is necessary in order to develop practical skills to meet learning outcomes and comply with accreditation requirements.
