Clinical Physiology 2022-23
School Of Medical And Health Sciences
Module - Semester 1 & 2
This module aims to give the student an in-depth knowledge of Clinical Physiology.
The basic eukaryotic cell and its components will be covered, together with the types of tissues that make up the functional systems. The module content will describe key principles of physiology and the function of individual systems. This will lead onto the effect of dysfunctional body systems in human activities, including the respiratory, circulatory, digestive, nervous, musculo-skeletal and genito-urinary systems as contained in the Physician Associate curriculum content.
-threshold -Category C (50% -59%)A threshold student should have thorough knowledge of the essential facts and key concepts of human physiology presented in the module. -good -Category B (60%-69%)A good student should have a thorough factual knowledge across all aspects of the module, and be able to detail examples where appropriate. -excellent -Category A (70% - 100%):An excellent student should have a thorough factual knowledge across all aspects of the module, and be able to detail examples where appropriate, supported by additional reading and knowledge drawn from other modules. The work presents evidence of critical thinking. For the higher 'A' marks, critical analysis and wider reading is essential.
- Analyse the relevance of buffers and pH in health and illness.
- Demonstrate a deep understanding of cells, tissue types and organs, both normal and abnormal.
- Demonstrate a detailed understanding of the integration of human anatomy and physiology in how diseases present, develop and respond to intervention.
- Demonstrate an understanding of the homeostatic balance in normal and abnormal physiological processes.
- Review the importance of control mechanisms, in particular negative and positive feedback.
