This course is designed to equip you with a broad-based understanding of the human body in health and disease. It develops your knowledge of human biology, with a focus on the medical aspects of human processes, examining how the human species evolved, how we change over our lifespan, and how our bodies are influenced by food, nutrition and environmental factors.
