|Description||This unit introduces students to Histology and Physiology.
Histology equips students with the knowledge of basic microscopic anatomy, the structure and function of tissues, glands and membranes, epithelial and muscular tissue, connective tissues, the characteristics of cells and tissues of the circulatory system, respiratory system, digestive system, nervous system, reproductive system, and urinary system.
In human physiology, students advance their study of the structure and physiological functions of the 11 core systems initially introduced in HMS101. These include the skeletal, muscular, integumentary (surface anatomy), digestive, cardiovascular, endocrine, respiratory, urinary, reproductive, lymphatic and nervous systems. This unit emphasizes homoeostatic control mechanisms in each system and the integration of the systems in the body.
|Learning outcomes||On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
