Deepen your understanding of the human body to lead positive change in human health.
Undertake a minor in human physiology to examine how cell, tissue and organ systems function within the human body.
Learn the vital roles played by our brain, nerves and hormones in controlling cardiovascular, respiratory, reproductive and metabolic processes important to our survival.
Apply scientific methods to investigate how the failure of these systems can result in disease or disorders.
Study physiological functions at a molecular and cellular level to examine how the body’s core processes are altered in diseased states.
Develop a holistic understanding of the complex links between the body, mind and disease by combining your minor with related courses in human anatomy, neuroscience, pharmacology or food science and nutrition.
In-depth knowledge of human physiology is essential if you are considering further study in the field of medicine, biomedical science or allied health. Studying courses in human physiology can also help you prepare for sitting the GAMSAT (Graduate Medical Schools Admission Test).
