Education Aims: The course aims to provide an introduction to modern aspects of human physiology and pharmacology, focusing on blood, the gastrointestinal and endocrine systems, and reproduction.
Knowledge and understanding:
Have an overview of aspects of human physiology and pharmacology in health and disease (relates to learning outcome A3, the importance of Biology in human health and disease and its relevance to medicine and biotechnology)
Understand physiological control systems (relates to learning outcome A7, organism structure and physiology)
Have an appreciation of environmental influences on physiological systems and homeostasis (relates to learning outcome A10, interactions of organisms and their environment)
Understand how different physiological systems maintain homeostasis and know examples of how drugs affect such systems (relates to learning outcome B3, understand complex ideas and relate them to specific problems or questions)
Use available resources to access the primary literature (relates to learning outcome D4, use and access information and communication technology)
