Aims:
To introduce knowledge and understanding of the gross anatomy of the human body, cardio-vascular physiology and respiratory physiology.

Learning Teaching & Assessment Strategy:
Knowledge disseminated and concepts explored in lectures, with learning supported by tutorial problems. Formative assessment and oral feedback given in tutorials. Skills developed and learning contextualised in laboratory class. The formal examination will assess all of the learning outcomes expressed in the descriptor.
