Pre-University The Human Body
This course is suitable for students who are considering undergraduate study within biomedical and life sciences or medicine. It explores the relationship between our human physiology and anatomy and environmental conditions, both on Earth and beyond. Students will build their awareness and understanding of how the body functions, looking at the cardiovascular, pulmonary, muscle, bone and neuro systems. They will learn how these systems adapt to the different characteristics of hostile environments, such as temperature extremes, mountain altitudes, airplane cabins, space microgravity conditions, and future habitats on the Moon and Mars.
During the course students will also be exposed to research that seeks to monitor and promote the medical and psychological wellbeing of humans exposed to these hostile environments, such as state-of-the art innovations in telehealth as well as virtual and augmented realities.
This course will consist of approximately 40 contact hours with teaching taking place from Monday to Friday.
