It is important for every biomedical scientist to understand how the human body functions. The aim of this unit is to give you an overview of the anatomy and physiology of the major systems of the human body, and to introduce you to the basic academic skills required by practicing biomedical scientists. In this unit, you will learn about the basic structure and functions of the major systems of the human body and apply this knowledge to determine how they work together in a coordinated manner. Using human physiological processes as a basis, you will develop critical thinking skills that allow you to distinguish between science and pseudoscience. Successful completion of this unit is necessary for you to succeed in units where higher levels of knowledge and application of understanding are required.
