Human biology

Short course

This intensive 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.

It is offered to those wishing to build on or refresh their knowledge of human biology for their own interest and/or professional development.

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 healthcare courses at Monash University. (Including the Master of Nursing Practice, the Master of Occupational Therapy Practice and the Master of Medical Radiation.) Other prerequisites for the Master of Nursing Practice – Graduate Entry course also apply. Please refer to the course handbook.

Applicants can register for the Human Biology Short Course almost anytime during the year to complete the eight course modules with assessment quizzes via flexible online delivery. Course participants will also enjoy the support of an online tutor throughout.

This account remains active for 25 weeks. Participants have a maximum of eight consecutive weeks to successfully complete the Human Biology Short Course once they have accessed the course content. Participants must complete 15 multiple choice quizzes on the first attempt, and can complete a maximum of four quizzes per week.
