All students without a year 12 science subject are strongly encouraged to enrol in CXA002 Foundations of Human Bioscience which is designed to support students in CXA107
Fundamentals of Bioscience is based on the structural organisation of the human body and the general functions of the body systems, emphasising the relationship between structure and function. Major concepts of human biology are introduced in the initial weeks and these concepts are contextualised in the functional anatomy of body systems, in subsequent weeks. Emphasis is on the clinical relevance of structure & function.
Basic concepts of microorganisms, their prevalence in the environment, and their interactions with the human body are explored with particular emphasis on application to health care environments.
This unit underpins the clinical units of the Bachelor of Nursing, Bachelor of Paramedic Practice & Bachelor or Health courses and provides the foundation for second level Bioscience units (CXA204 and CXA205 or CXA310).
