This unit is designed to introduce students to human cells and tissues and the anatomy and physiology of the integumentary, defence, musculoskeletal and neuroendocrine systems in the human body. The unit will include: (a) the basic facts and concepts relating to the human body's structural and functional organisation at different levels (cells, tissues, organs, systems), and the constituent regions, parts and organs of several body systems and their functional interactions; (b) the range of normal variation in human anatomy and physiology, and the relationships between structure and function; and (c) anatomical and physiological terminology which enables students to discuss facts, concepts, problems and biomedical issues relating to the structural and functional organisation of the body.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.

- Correctly use conventional biomedical and anatomical terminology relating to cells, tissues, blood, immunological defence mechanisms, and the integumentary, musculoskeletal, nervous and endocrine systems of the human body.
- Apply knowledge of the theory, concepts and principles related to the structure and function of human cells, tissues, blood and immunological defence mechanisms.
- Explain physiological principles and apply knowledge of the structure, anatomical relationships, and the homeostatic functions of the major organs (in relation to their anatomical structures), of the following systems: integumentary, musculoskeletal, nervous, endocrine.
