The Human Biology Short Course is designed using a systems based approach to provide participants with a broad and thorough introduction to the anatomical structures and physiological functions of the human body.
A background in human anatomy and physiology is a prerequisite for entry to most postgraduate health science courses. Successful completion of this Human Biology Short Course meets the criteria of previous study in human biology for acceptance into several graduate-entry health care courses at Monash University. (Including the Master of Nursing Practice, the Master of Occupational Therapy Practice, the Master of Medical Ultrasound and the Master of Medical Radiation.)
The course is also offered to those wishing to build on or refresh their knowledge of human biology for their own interest and/or professional development. Applicants can register for this course at anytime during the year.
Course content is delivered online with academic and administrative support available by email or phone (9:00am - 5:00pm Monday-Friday, AUS eastern time). The course is divided into eight modules, with each module focussing on a different body systems, and demonstrating how all body systems are interrelated. Each module is followed by one or two multiple choice quizzes. You must obtain a grade of at least 50% for each quiz to successfully complete the course.
Participants in the course have access to the online material for a maximum of 25 weeks, however, once a participant first logs into the online learning material he/she must complete the course within 8 weeks. Once the course has been completed access the online material will also cease.
A certificate of completion will be emailed to all those who successfully complete the course.
