After this course students will understand the anatomical and physiological basics, you can describe the human body in medical terminology as well as assign the various organs topographically. You are able to bring the general structure to describe the structure and function of the various organs and the basic physiological activities of humans in relation to the organs and organ systems

Acquiring sound theoretical knowledge on the subjects listed below

A-level knowledge of biology (eg cell structure, basics of cell division (mitosis and meiosis), transcription and translation / protein biosynthesis) and chemistry (eg structure of DNA, the cell's energy); morphological knowledge of the inner organs
