This unit of study offers a basic introduction to the functions of the remaining body systems: gastrointestinal, respiratory, haematology, endocrine, reproductive and renal. The practical component involves experiments on humans and computer simulations, with an emphasis on hypothesis generation and data analysis. The tutorial sessions develop critical thinking and graduate attributes while demonstrating the integrative nature of physiology. Oral and written communication skills are emphasized, as well as group learning and team work.
Three 1 hour lectures per week, and one 3 hour practical or one 3 hour tutorial per week. There will be one 4 hour practical session.
Two written exams; group and individual written and oral presentations (100%)
