Considers prior knowledge of the human body and further develops and extends this at the cellular, tissue, organ, and systems level. Such an approach will allow for understanding and integration of the structure and function at the various levels and their interdependency. This understanding will serve to integrate structure, function and physiology and its application to studies in health and human sciences.

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
