Career - Human anatomy & physiology
Human anatomy & physiology is the study of human body parts including their structure and function. Human anatomy & physiology studies are applicable to all areas of human health and well-being including medicine, nursing, exercise physiology, physiotherapy, the biosciences and more. As molecules combine to form cells, cells combine to form tissues, tissues combine to form organs, and all organs have distinct functions, human anatomy & physiology in context of the biosciences, is often taken as a first year Bachelor degree subject (most commonly as part of a Medical Science program) along with general biology to provide a reference point for the study of more complex subjects including biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, hematology, histology, immunology, pathology and more. In the case of flexible degrees where the onus lays with the student to design the study program, in the event of numerous subjects to choose from, it may be better to select more specialist scientific subjects as these will contribute to formal qualifications. A human anatomy & physiology textbook can be loaned from the library to study on the side, or purchased for the home collection to refer to at anytime. Regardless of the means of acquiring a knowledge of human anatomy & physiology it is essential for a full understanding of human biology that will remain useful (and be expanded upon) throughout ones entire bioscience career.
