Human anatomy and physiologyE-course
Language of the course:Estonian language
Course volume:100 academic hours of independent learning (including e-learning).
Short overview and structure of the e-course
The Human Anatomy and Physiology e-course gives an overview of all human systems: 1) circulatory system, 2) digestive system, 3) lymphatic system, 4) respiratory system, 5) urogenital system, 6) endocrine system, 7) nervous system and 8) sensory system. In addition to the knowledge acquired within one system, the various connections with other systems will be explained. For example, how hormones produced by the adrenal glands affect the functioning of other organs, or how the lymphatic and circulatory systems are related to each other, or how the blood pressure affects the functioning of the kidneys, and so on.
The e-course is structured on the basis of (sub-)modules with recorded video lectures (about 25 academic hours). Based on these, the e-course participant acquires new basic knowledge of human anatomy and physiology by completing different tasks as part of independent work.

Prerequisites for enrolling in an e-course
The Human Anatomy and Physiology e-course is open to everyone who wants to start learning Human Anatomy and Physiology from the beginning, or who wants to refresh their previous acquired knowledge.
Completion of the e-course
In order to participate in the Human Anatomy and Physiology e-course, you need to register an account on the website, which will later be linked to the Human Anatomy and Physiology e-course. Further information will be sent after registration to the e-course. The e-course can be completed at a time and pace that suits you.
The Human Anatomy and Physiology e-course is based on recorded video lectures. If you have any questions during the e-course, you can email them to the e-course organizer. If the question does not require a long answer, it will be answered by e-mail. In the case of a longer answer, we prefer three options for answering the question: 1) by telephone, or 2) via Zoom, or 3) by creating an additional video clip to be attached to the e-course. For the first two options, an exact date and time will be agreed, which is suitable for both the e-course participant and the e-course organiser.
Documents delivered after the e-course
Upon completing the Human Anatomy and Physiology e-course, a certificate or a notice will be issued. The certificate is issued when all the learning outcomes are achieved. In order to achieve these learning outcomes, various tasks and multiple-choice tests are required to do. Feedback on the assignments will be given in written form by the e-course organizer. Assignments will be reviewed, and feedback will be given within 24 to 72 hours (generally within 24 hours); then, you can move to the next module.
When can I start the e-course? How long can I access the e-course?
If you register for an e-course, you can start the e-course within 48 hours. Once you have registered, you can access the e-course for two years.
