Biological Sciences. Introduction to the Human Body
Welcome to this Biological Sciences module. This introduction to anatomy and physiology will help you revisit the basic science that underlies all human health and disease. It is one of a series of CPD modules, and will set you up for the modules that go into greater detail about the structures and processes involved in being a human.
The Biological Sciences - Introduction to the Human Body online learning module has clear and concise aims, objectives and anticipated outcomes, listed below. These will appear on the Dentaljuce Enhanced CPD Certificate, along with the time spent, dates, and detailed topics you studied within the module. Certificates can be printed at any time, covering any range of dates. Dentaljuce CPD complies with the UK GDC's requirements for enhanced verifiable continuing professional development.

The aim of the learning and teaching materials in this Dentaljuce module is to allow learners to enhance their basic knowledge of the biological sciences.
• to teach the basis of anatomy and physiology as it relates to healthcare professionals.
Anticipated learning outcomes:
The learner will be able to:
- Distinguish between anatomy and physiology, and identify several branches of each
- Describe the structure of the body, from simplest to most complex, in terms of the six levels of organization
- Identify the functional characteristics of human life
- Identify the four requirements for human survival
- Define homeostasis and explain its importance to normal human functioning
- Use appropriate anatomical terminology to identify key body structures, body regions, and directions in the body
- Compare and contrast at least four medical imaging techniques in terms of their function and use
This CPD will support the learner in meeting the following GDC principles and the underlying standards:
• P7: Maintain, develop and work within your professional knowledge and skills
GDC Development Outcomes
