Course Summary

Our Human Body Anatomy and Physiology for Health Care professional development course is for those with professional experience of anatomy and biology, as well as those relatively new to the subjects. You’ll get the chance to explore how humans’ complex systems are built, work, and keep us alive.

Course Details

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.

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. Over the course’s duration, you’ll get the opportunity to learn more about the nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, musculo-skeletal, urinary, reproductive and integumentary systems.
