Human Physiology A (CHP207) builds on first year Biology-based units and gives students an understanding of the function of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems and their integration and interaction in the human body. Students will learn how to collect and interpret relevant information in order to develop logical ways of dealing with problems associated with the function and control of physiological systems. In addition, students are given the opportunity to develop their analytical, written and computer literacy skills. Human Physiology A also includes a practical component which emphasizes and expands on key concepts delivered in the lectures.
