An introduction to the structure and function of the musculoskeletal, nervous, endocrine and immune systems in the human body, and to biostatistics.
We all take for granted that our body functions under so many different conditions whether we are sitting at a desk, playing sport, eating or resting. In HUBS 191 you will have the opportunity to develop conceptual learning skills about the structure (Anatomy) and function (Physiology) of your body and how these systems work under different conditions. Modules include movement and the nervous system (Human Movement and Sensation), hormones (Endocrine system) and response to injury (Immune System) and the use of biostatistics to enhance our scientific understanding of the human body. The paper integrates this material to help you understand how and why our bodies are such amazingly efficient machines.

- Learning Outcomes
Successfully completing HUBS 191 gives you the essential building blocks of knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the human body. This knowledge will underpin your further study in a wide range of Health Science disciplines. These include both Bachelor of Science (BSc) and biomedical science (BBiomedSc) majors and minors. HUBS 191 is part of the Health Sciences First Year programme required for access to a range of Professional Health Science qualifications.
