Students in this course are introduced to biochemistry, cell structure and cellular processes (transport, cellular respiration, photosynthesis) as foundations for understanding human anatomy and physiology. The major human organ systems are covered in detail. Lab experiences include experiments, demonstrations and some dissection. Knowledge of general chemistry is essential in understanding much of the material in this course.

This course is for internationally-based teachers to practise e-learning and online teaching. Teachers can also use this course to practise course design using online tools in the program called 'Moodle'. Each participant will have a unit of his/her own to practise adding resources and activities.
