The study of human physiology provides the scientific foundation for the fi eld of medicine and all other professions related to human health and physical performance. The scope of topics included in a human physiology course is therefore wideranging, yet each topic must be covered in suffi cient detail to provide a fi rm basis for future expansion and application. The rigor of this course, however, need not diminish the student’s initial fascination with how the body works. On the contrary, a basic understanding of physiological mechanisms can instill a deeper appreciation for the complexity and beauty of the human body and motivate students to continue learning more.
