Description

This course will give you a theoretical and practical basis for explaining the functioning of the muscular, respiratory and cardiovascular systems at rest and during exercise. You will explore the effects of extreme environmental conditions on whole body physiology, including in relation to aerospace and military medicine.

You will study topics from both systemic and cellular/molecular perspectives in order to gain an understanding of the breadth of investigative approaches employed in human physiology research. You will also focus on practical work, learning how to plan and run experiments using human subjects.

Ultimately we aim to equip you with the knowledge and skills to enhance your understanding and expertise in human physiology in its broadest sense and build a career in a related field.

Course format and assessment

Teaching

For every 30-credit module we will provide you with 36 hours of teaching through lectures and tutorials, along with 24 hours of practical classes. For every 15-credit module you will have six hours of teaching. The 60-credit research project is a 12-week full-time laboratory-based research project, and how long it takes will depend on your project. We will expect you to complement all of this with self-study.

Assessment

We will assess you through unseen written exams, lab reports, poster and oral presentations and coursework essays.

The study time and assessment methods detailed above are typical and give you a good indication of what to expect. However, they may change if the course modules change.
