Teaching

  • SHC151 Anatomy and Physiology for Healthcare Science

    This is an introductory module to the structure and function of the human body, delivered with a focus on healthcare science.

  • SHC152 Pathophysiology for Healthcare Science

    This is an introductory module to the structure and function of the human body and how it is affected by disease, delivered with a focus on healthcare science.

  • SHC238 Pathophysiology of Common Cardiovascular and Respiratory Conditions

    This module will prepare students for their role in clinical practice by ensuring they understand the pathophysiology of common conditions that result in referral to cardiovascular, respiratory and sleep services.

  • SHC314 Introduction to Pathology and Therapeutics for Health Scientists

    This module builds upon existing scientific and clinical knowledge, carrying on the progression to application of knowledge to the clinical environment. Pharmacological aspects of care and management will be incorporated. Students will be encouraged to scrutinize their own practice and discuss rationales for patient management by applying their knowledge of pharmacology and pathophysiology via group presentations.

  • SHF100 Anatomy and Physiology 2

    This module aims to provide an understanding of the structure and function of the key systems which is a core requirement of osteopathic medicine. This module builds upon knowledge introduced in SHF109 Anatomy and Physiology 1, and develops the understanding of the structure and functions of the key systems of the body. This knowledge will underpin the pathophysiology and therapeutics covered in Year 2.

  • SHF109 Anatomy and Physiology 1

    This module utilises lecture and laboratory based study to explore the anatomy and physiology of the major body systems. Furthermore, this module will be used to underpin the knowledge required to understand clinical presentation, diagnosis and osteopathic management of pathological conditions.

  • SHF206 Pathophysiology and Therapeutics 2

    This module will explore the processes underlying pathological chronic conditions, such as metabolism, cancer and degeneration. Common conditions affecting whole body systems, such as musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine, renal and gastro-intestinal, will be discussed in terms of pathogenesis, clinical presentations, impact upon the patient and its therapeutic management.

  • SHG112 Introduction to Health Sciences (ABMU)

    This module will introduce the student to normal anatomy and physiology, as well as key sociological and psychological concepts.

  • SHG130 Foundations in Human Anatomy and Physiology for Health and Social Care

    This module is designed to meet the specific needs of students on the BSc Health and Social Care degree. Unlike current anatomy and physiology modules it assumes no prior knowledge of the subject material and provides an overview of the structure and function of each organ system. The module enhances material delivered in lead lectures with laboratory sessions and makes use of the pre-existing Visual Bioscience software developed by the department. The module will also give an overview of common medical conditions.

  • SHP104 Human Anatomy and Physiology 1

    This module uses lecture and laboratory based study to explore the anatomy and physiology of the major organs and organ systems of the human body. Teaching will begin with the molecular and cellular basis of life, utilising appropriate techniques to illustrate the structure of organelles, cells and tissues. The major organs and organ systems will be examined and their role in homeostasis explained, with the importance of the interplay between different organs emphasised.

  • SHP207 Human Anatomy and Physiology II

    This module will develop knowledge of human anatomy and physiology. Teaching will build upon the lecture material delivered in year 1. The major organs and organ systems will be examined in detail, including relevant physical and biochemical processes.

  • SHP209 Pathophysiology 1 - Diseases and Disorders of the Vital Organs

    This level 5 module builds upon existing scientific knowledge and a comprehensive understanding of anatomy and physiology of the human body, obtained in level 4. This new module focuses primarily on the five vital organs (the brain, the heart, the lungs, the liver and the kidneys), and covers in depth, the pathophysiology of each organ, providing details of the diseases and disorders which may affect these key organs.

  • SHP210 Pathophysiology 2 - Abnormal States and Disease

    This level 5 module builds upon existing scientific knowledge and a comprehensive understanding of anatomy and physiology of the human body, obtained in level 4. This new module focuses on abnormal states and pathophysiology of many of the body¿s organs and systems, and covers in depth, diseases and disorders which are clinically observed in these systems.

  • SHP311 Systems Physiology and Common Pathologies II

    This level 6 module will cover the pathophysiology of the following organ systems and disease e.g. ¿ Nervous System ¿ Endocrine System ¿ Renal System ¿ Immunology ¿ Cancer

  • SHP354 Systems Physiology and Common Pathologies

    This module builds on the students¿ knowledge and understanding of human physiological processes which are fundamental to health and wellbeing. Students should extend their comprehension of systems failure and the adverse effect this has on maintenance of health. Students should have a basic understanding of human anatomy and physiology.

  • SHVM00 Applied Anatomy and Pathophysiology for Long Term Chronic Conditions Management

    This module is used to underpin the applied knowledge required to understand the clinical presentation and management of specific long term and chronic conditions.
