Level 3 Diploma in Anatomy & Physiology

Course Synopsis
This Quality Assured Level 3 Diploma course in Anatomy and Physiology aims at providing a foundation in the subject area. Those who wish to enter into studies in the field of complimentary medicines or merely wish to improve their knowledge in this area will find this course particularly attractive. The course will equally provide a basis for those looking at furthering their vocation in the public sector.

Course Structure
The course consists of 10 specifically crafted modules or units and introduces body systems in a logical manner. Clearly defined learning outcomes will be included in each module and contain self-evaluation activities together with an end of module assignment. It is highly recommended that students complete all assignments set throughout the course to ensure they have the best preparation possible for the final examination.

Course content

Module 1: Introduction to the human body
The first module is an outline of the course contents and introduces the body systems in a rational manner, demonstrating the links that exist between them. The content also covers basic body chemistry and organization in preparation for subsequent modules. The course material covers:


Negative feedback mechanisms, Positive feedback mechanisms, Survival mechanisms, Transport systems, Internal communications systems, Intake and elimination, Protection, Movement, and Reproduction and genetic characteristics.

Body chemistry:

Atoms, molecules and compounds


Cell structure and function, Tissues, and Organization of body structures and systems

Module 2: Communication systems within the body: Part 1
There are three modules related to the subject of communication, structures and organs. These enable the body to communicate both internally and with the external world will be presented. In addition to structure, function and physiological aspects, each module will give brief information on some more common diseases and disorders.


Composition, functions and common disorders


Vessels, heart, circulation, blood pressure, pulse,
and common disorders and diseases

Module 3: Communication systems within the body: Part 2


Vessels, organs and tissues; structure and function, common disorders and diseases

Nervous system:

Structure and function; brain and spinal cord; autonomic nervous system; common disorders and diseases

Module 4: Communication systems within the body: Part 3

Special senses:

The ear: structure and function, The eye: structure and function, Physiology of smell and taste, and Common disorders and diseases

Endocrine system:

Structure and function; common disorders and diseases

Module 5: Intake and elimination systems of the body: Part 1
Three further modules cover intake and elimination. The student will focus more specifically on how the body functions, what it requires to maintain function and growth and the mechanisms that are in place for the elimination of waste products.


Structure and function including upper and lower respiratory tracts; physiology of respiration, and Common disorders and diseases

Module 6: Intake and elimination systems of the body: Part 2


Structure and function of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, minerals, vitamins and water

Digestive system:

Structure and function, Absorption of nutrients, Metabolism, and Common disorders and diseases

Module 7: Intake and elimination systems of the body: Part 3


Structure and function, Physiology of micturition, and Common disorders and diseases

Module 8: The survival and protective systems of the body: Part 1
The final three modules will cover survival and protection. Students will examine basic genetics, the replication of the human cell, together with repair and how cells deal with invasion of bacteria, viruses and external breaches of defence mechanisms (for example wounds).


Structure and function, Wound healing, and Common disorders and diseases


Inflammatory response, Cell mediated immunity, Anti body immunity, Acquired immunity, and Common disorders and diseases

Module 9: The survival and protective systems of the body: Part 2


Structure and function of bone
Axial skeleton, Appendicular skeleton, Joints, Muscles, and Common disorders and diseases

Module 10: The survival and protective systems of the body: Part 3

Basic genetics:

Chromosomes, genes and DNA, Protein synthesis, Cell division and inheritance and Common disorders and diseases


Structure and function, and Common disorders and diseases
