The topic covers the human organ systems in detail (in particular, the integumentary, musculoskeletal, endocrine, nervous, cardiovascular, renal, gastro-intestinal, and respiratory). In addition, some chemical and physical science principles applied to the body are introduced where appropriate. This topic will provide the student with a strong general background knowledge of both anatomy and physiology.
Over the course of study, participants will be asked to complete 12 modules. At the end of each module participants will be required to complete a short quiz to assess their knowledge of the module. A grade of 80% or higher in the quiz will provide access to the next module. Participants are provided with electronic copies of the course study guide and readings. Access to a computer and the internet is required.
