Course Title: HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY
HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY AS A COURSE.
Human physiology can be said to be the scientific study of the functions of the various structures that makes up the human body.
The course is taught together with Anatomy, which is the study of the structure of the human body.
Human Physiology is synonymous with physiology, just that it deals solely with humans, and not entirely all organisms.
It is a 5 year University course, and partakers of the course are taught several other sub-courses during their stay in school which may include:
2. Human Anatomy.
3. Environmental Physiology etc.
WHY STUDY HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY.
The following are some of the reasons why human physiology is been studied?
1. It helps one understand the functionality of the human body.
2. With a degree in human physiology, one can work in different areas ranging from Educational institutions, sports and mostly in health institutions.
3. The salary scale of human physiologists is mouth-watering and decent.
