CRA276 Microbiology and Health

Builds on the knowledge of cell structures gained in CRA171; describes structure and function in viruses; and introduces eukaryotic parasites of human beings. Students gain an understanding of how microbes can be both beneficial and harmful to human beings; how infectious diseases are transmitted and how microbes can be controlled. Students are taught safe microbiological techniques during the practicals.

CRA283 Human Bioscience Studies

Builds on students' prior learning in the clinical setting. Clinical problems and their related pathophysiology, pharmacology, physiology and anatomy are examined. Students use a broad, integrated approach to study the somatic, visceral, critical and regulatory multisystems (groups of functionally related systems). Homeostasis and altered homeostasis form a consistent theme. Foundatinal concepts are introduced progressively with each multisystem explored.
