UHSE program includes two online courses

Course 1.    Applied Anatomy and Physiology – 80 hours

Anatomy is the study of structures associated with the human body. Physiology is the study of functions of each of these structures. This course explains how the organs and tissues of the human body operate together to sustain life. Included are sections on anatomical and medical terminology. All organ systems are discussed, with a particular emphasis placed on regulatory functions of the Nervous and Immune Systems, as well as on the regional anatomy of the skull and cervical, thoracic and lumbosacral spine.

Course 2.    Pathology – 15 hours

The course is an introduction to both general and regional pathology. The word ‘pathology’ originates from two Greek words, pathos, meaning ‘disease or suffering’ and logos meaning ‘study.’ Hence, pathology is the study of diseases. In a section on General Pathology, you will explore the reactions of cells and tissues to abnormal stimuli such as infection or trauma. Lectures on Regional Pathology offer an overview of rheumatic conditions prevalent in the ageing population. Cervical pathologies, types of headaches and migraines are discussed in-depth in the section of the neck and head pathologies.
