Diploma in Anatomy and Physiology of Human Body – Level 3

Finally, an incredible, comprehensive, and informative course designed to increase the understanding of the structure and function of the human body

With this course provided by Global Edulink, a respected and leading online training provider, you are taken on an extensive journey through the anatomy and physiology of the human body. The course begins with the cardiovascular system (the heart and vessels), through to the respiratory system (the lungs), then the nervous system (and its connection to the brain, spinal cord, eyes, ears, and memory), over to the digestive system (mouth, pancreas, small, and large intestines), the endocrine system (pancreas and thyroid, kidneys, ureters and bladder), male and female reproductive systems, the musculoskeletal system (muscles and bones), the immune system, and finally the biology of human cancer.

You will be in wonderment at the remarkably complex, resilient, and endlessly fascinating structure that is the human body, expounded through the use of life-sized models, detailed colour illustrations, and even footage depicting surgery. In clear, concise explanations aimed at the level of the interested layperson. You will gain an understanding of exactly how things work and why they sometimes do not.

Use this course as a brilliant introduction to the medical world and gain a superb, complete overview of anatomy and physiology from a qualified educator. Also, this could be used as a fantastic stepping stone within your medical career, or could be simply used to enhance personal knowledge.

Our online course is so well designed you will feel that you are in the classroom! This course is comprised of professionally narrated e-Learning modules, interactive quizzes, tests and exams. All delivered through a system that you will have access to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 365 days (12 months).
