About this ITEC Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology Diploma Course ...
Human Anatomy and Physiology is the study of human beings — the structure of our bodies and the way they work. Pathology is the study of diseases, or put another way, physiology that has gone wrong!
Human Anatomy and Physiology is a course whose content is relevant to us all. The more we know about our bodies, and how they work – and sometimes do not – the better equipped we are to look after ourselves and maintain our health.
This course is offered as part of our Distance Learning and Home Study program which will guide you through comprehensive notes and workbooks around the human body and its functioning.
The course follows the ITEC Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology for Complimentary Therapists syllabus and is graded at level 3 (QCF) which is a nationally recognised qualification.
Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology forms the foundation stone for many courses in complementary and massage therapies. It is an ideal course for students wishing to study human anatomy and also for those in the fields of medical studies, complementary therapies and bodywork.
Completion of this course may provide exemption and count as credits towards other advanced courses.
