The Human Physiology major provides an integrated suite of units which builds upon the fundamentals of anatomy and physiology covered in the College core units. Specifically, students will learn about regional and rehabilitation anatomy, cardiorespiratory, renal and neuromuscular physiology and associated diseases. The relationships between gastrointestinal function, diet, nutrition, metabolism and human health will be covered, including examining the role of diet in chronic diseases and its importance in growth and development. In the final year, students will draw on their knowledge and apply their learning in different contexts in the two capstone units, Applied Biomedical Sciences and Integrative Physiology.
