Anatomy is the science of the structure of the (human) body and its organs. Form and structure (of the human being) are examined. Physiology is the science that deals with the life processes in the organism, i.e. the functional processes (physical and biochemical). Both disciplines together can explain the functions of the human being.
The lecture imparts basic knowledge about the essential organ systems of the human being and the associated medical terminology. The basic question of the course is:

"How does the human organism work?"

The lecture series is aimed at students who are interested in anatomical and physiological issues. The focus of the first part of the lecture is on the molecular and cellular basics. The focus of the second part (Physiology and Anatomy II takes place in the summer semester) is on the system aspect.

Assessment of success

The assessment of success takes the form of a written examination lasting 120 minutes.
The success control includes the content of Physiology and Anatomy I (every winter term) and Physiology and Anatomy II (every summer term).
