Anatomy & Physiology Level 2
[ UFHL03 ]
Human Anatomy and Physiology is the study of human beings, the structure of our bodies, the way they work and the way in which we are related to other living things. It is much the same thing as Human Biology.
•Course Length - 12 Months
•Award Received - Level 2 Certificate of Achievement by NCFE
•Course Code: UFHL03
Aims of the course
• To increase your understanding of the physical structure of the human body
• To enable you to maintain your health better through an improved knowledge of the way your body functions
• To help you understand the physical and chemical ways in which humans resemble other organisms
• To apply sound scientific principles to the ways in which you obtain and use information
• To enable you to interpret data accurately
• To help you to design investigations and to know how the results can enable you to draw different conclusions
The main aim though, is for you to enjoy what you are doing. That way you are more likely to try to find out about things and you are then more likely to remember what you have learned!
Human Anatomy and Physiology is a course whose content is relevant to us all. The more we know about our bodies, and how they work and sometimes do not, the better equipped we are to look after ourselves and maintain our health.
