Human Anatomy and Physiology is the study of human beings — the structure of our bodies, the way they work (and sometimes go wrong!) and the way in which we are related to other living things. It is much the same thing as Human Biology. However, less emphasis is placed on the importance of comparing human attributes with those of other organisms, and on examining our relationships with them. More emphasis is placed on the physiology of the human body, and the way in which we are able to perceive and react to our environment.
It is an ideal course for students wishing to study human anatomy and also for those in the fields of caring and medical studies
