|Prerequisites||HMS101 Human Anatomy 1|
|Description||This unit builds on HMS101 Human Anatomy 1 to broaden and deepen students’ knowledge and understanding of human physiology’s regional and surface anatomy. This unit also lays a foundation for the clinical diagnosis and application of acupuncture. Regional and surface anatomy introduces students to the upper limbs, lower limbs, neck, back, thoracic and abdomen.
Biochemistry provides students with an understanding of biochemical reactions in the human body. It includes the structures and functions of proteins and enzymes, the bioenergetics and metabolism of carbohydrates and lipids, and the metabolism of proteins, amino acids and nucleic acids. It also addresses the role of minerals and vitamins, the function of hormones in extracellular and intracellular communication, the structure of the genetic code, the mechanisms of gene expression and regulation and gene replication and repair.
