Objectives
Students gain a thourough understanding of human physiology, they will have an excellent command of the technical terms of physiology and will acquire in-depth knowledge of physiological functions interrelationsships within the human body. Based upon their physiological know-how, they will be able to adopt that knowledge on selected pathophysiological situations affecting the human organism. In geberal, they will get to know the subject of human physiology as a fundamental scientific discipline within their study of nutritional sciences
