Overview

This unit expands on content from 'Anatomy and Physiology 1' of the structure and function of the human body, using homeostatic regulation of the internal environment as the ongoing theme. The endocrine and renal systems are discussed, as well as their roles in the regulation of variables such as fluid and electrolyte balance and acid-base balance. Specific topics include the major physiological systems of the human body, including the renal, endocrine, special senses, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, genetic inheritance, lymphatic and immune systems in the human body. The completion of both HBM1001 and HBM1202 Anatomy and Physiology 1 and 2 units will provide a solid foundation for advanced study in physiology.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

  1. Analyse the structure and function of the major physiological systems of the human body, including the renal, endocrine, special senses, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, genetic inheritance, lymphatic and immune systems in the human body;
  2. Investigate how the homeostatic mechanisms regulate fluid and electrolyte balance and acid-base balance;
  3. Conceptually map the processes of homeostatic regulation and feedback loops to describe the mechanisms underlying normal functions of the human body; and
  4. Interpret the role of the structure and function of human organ systems to clinical scenarios through laboratory experiments and activities, and team based guided inquiry learning.

Assessment

For Melbourne campuses

The assessment tasks link the learning outcomes and graduate capabilities. The laboratory worksheets allow students to think critically and evaluate and analyse information collaboratively from laboratory activities. The collaborative tests carried out in teams enable students to think critically and involves planning and organising self and others. The final assessment is an individual test which will rigorously evaluate key concepts of physiology. The learning outcomes are covered across all assessments. Collaborative tests serve as feedback for individual tests which occur mid-block and end of block.
