Course Summary

In this course you will get the chance to explore how humans’ complex systems are built, work, and keep us alive. The study of the human body is a hugely complex subject, but we’ve designed this professional development programme to benefit you whether you’re relatively new to human anatomy and physiology, or looking to build on your professional experience. Either way, it’s a fast-moving study programme, during which you have the opportunity to progress to a relatively complex level. In this course you’ll get to study all aspects of the human body, and how it functions. We begin with a detailed study of cells – the body’s building blocks – and work towards organs and organ systems, as well as how everything works together as a unit and gets us through everyday life.

Course Highlights: Our dedicated academic team brings extensive health and social care experience to the course content. Along with their passion for service excellence in health and social care settings, they’re also currently engaged in highly relevant research, which means they can add valuable context and insight to your learning.
