The unit introduces students to theoretical aspects of anatomy and physiology relevant to the practice of dermal therapy. The unit provides important underpinning knowledge that students will require in their practical applications throughout the degree program. Topics include; introduction to anatomical terminology; introduction to cell and tissue biology; the musculoskeletal system and circulatory system with emphasis on craniofacial anatomy and physiology of these systems; introduction to endocrine system biology with emphasis on homeostasis and feedback mechanisms relevant to dermal science.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
