Diploma in Anatomy and Physiology (Recognised by the Complementary Medical Association)
 
Course Synopsis:
This diploma course is aimed at providing a foundation in Anatomy and Physiology. It will particularly appeal to those who wish to enter into studies in the area of complimentary medicines or simply wish to improve their knowledge in this area. The course equally provides a foundation for those looking at furthering their career in the public sector.

Course Structure
The course consists of 10 modules or units and introduces body systems in a logical manner. Each module will have clearly defined learning outcomes and contain self-evaluation activities together with an end of module assignment. Following successful completion of the 10 modules and assignments there will be a 5000 word extended essay, which students will be required to pass in order to gain the diploma. Recommended reading lists and useful external resource links will be given. The module titles are as follows:

Module 1: Introduction to the human body
Module 2: Communication systems within the body: part 1
Module 3: Communication systems within the body: part 2
Module 4: Communication systems within the body: part 3
Module 5: Intake and elimination systems of the body: part 1
Module 6: Intake and elimination systems of the body: part 2
Module 7: Intake and elimination systems of the body: part 3
Module 8: The survival and protective systems of the body: part 1
Module 9: The survival and protective systems of the body: part 2
Module 10: The survival and protective systems of the body: part 3

Course content
Module 1: Introduction to the human body
This module is an overview of the course contents and introduces the body systems in a logical manner, demonstrating the links between them. It also covers basic body chemistry and organization in preparation for following modules. The course material covers:

Homeostasis: Negative feedback mechanisms
Positive feedback mechanisms
Survival mechanisms
Transport systems
Internal communications systems
Intake and elimination
Protection
Movement
Reproduction and genetic characteristics 
Body chemistry: Atoms, molecules and compounds
Organization: Cell structure and function
Tissues
Organization of body structures and systems 

Module 2: Communication systems within the body: part 1
In the three communication modules, structures and organs that enable the body to communicate both internally and with the external world will be presented. In addition to structure, function and physiological aspects, each module will give brief information on some common diseases and disorders.

Blood: Composition, functions and common disorders
Cardiovascular
System: Vessels, heart, circulation, blood pressure, pulse,
and common disorders and diseases

Module 3: Communication systems within the body: part 2
Lymphatic: Vessels, organs and tissues; structure and function, common disorders and diseases
Nervous system: Structure and function; brain and spinal cord; autonomic nervous system; common disorders and diseases

Module 4: Communication systems within the body: part 3
Special senses: The ear: structure and function
The eye: structure and function
Physiology of smell and taste
Common disorders and diseases 
Endocrine system: Structure and function; common disorders and diseases 

Module 5: Intake and elimination systems of the body: part 1
The intake and elimination modules cover how the body functions, what it requires to maintain function and growth and the mechanisms that are in place for the elimination of waste products.

Respiratory
system: Structure and function including upper and lower respiratory tracts; physiology of respiration
Common disorders and diseases 

Module 6: Intake and elimination systems of the body: part 2
Nutrition: Structure and function of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, minerals, vitamins and water 
Digestive system: Structure and function
Absorption of nutrients
Metabolism
Common disorders and diseases 

Module 7: Intake and elimination systems of the body: part 3
Urinary
system: Structure and function
Physiology of micturition
Common disorders and diseases 

Module 8: The survival and protective systems of the body: part 1
The survival and protection modules examine basic genetics, how the human cell replicates, together with repair and how cells deal with invasion of bacteria, viruses and external breaches of defence mechanisms (for example wounds).

Skin: Structure and function
Wound healing
Common disorders and diseases 
Immunity: Inflammatory response
Cell mediated immunity
Anti body immunity
Acquired immunity
Common disorders and diseases 

Module 9: The survival and protective systems of the body: part 2
Musculoskeletal
System: Structure and function of bone
Axial skeleton
Appendicular skeleton
Joints
Muscles
Common disorders and diseases 

Module 10: The survival and protective systems of the body: part 3
Basic genetics: Chromosomes, genes and DNA
Protein synthesis
Cell division and inheritance
Common disorders and diseases
