Advanced Human Physiology builds on foundations of second-year Physiology to provide students with a more robust understanding of some key body systems and physiological concepts. The subject will focus on integrating concepts and synthesizing ideas to tackle challenging Physiological questions related to various clinical and functional scenarios. Students are encouraged to work in self-organised groups to complete progressively through semester questions that aid in conceptual understanding and that contribute to the foundation for assessment components of the subject.
This subject will provide the foundation for other third-year offerings in Physiology including pre-requisite content requirements for Clinical and Translational Physiology. Face-to-face learning and teaching sessions represent a blend of traditional information presentation, polling with formative feedback and discussion, and workshop and other active-learning activities.
Intended learning outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students should be able to:
- Identify the interrelated functions of individual physiological systems in complex, integrated body functions;
- Apply understanding of fundamental physiological systems to analyse and interpret other complex functional responses;
- Evaluate clinical or extreme physiological challenges a priori through assessment of existing knowledge of the underlying science;
- Synthesize understanding across multiple physiological systems; and
- Work in a group to formulate a common understanding from a diversity of knowledge and perspectives from team members
- Students will develop and enhance skills related to problem solving, synthesis and integration of information related to complex topics and processes. Students will also gain an appreciation of the value of teamwork in problem solving and synthesis of physiological concepts.
