Human Anatomy – an introduction
The study of the human body involves anatomy and physiology. Human anatomy is the scientific study of the morphology of the human body. Divided into gross anatomy (the study of anatomical structures that can be seen with the naked eye) and microscopic anatomy, (the study of cellular tissues at all levels) Physiology is the science of how all the systems and the organs of the human body interact in order to maintain the body’s homeostasis.
Anatomy is the study of form and physiology is the study of function. They are intrinsically related.
The speaker aims to give an overview of human anatomy and its many interacting systems. Skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, circulatory, digestive, immune, renal, reproductive, respiratory, lymphatic and integumentary.
Diane is a qualified and highly experienced osteopath. She qualified in 1988 from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine which based in London. It was a 4 year, full time course split between Osteopathic college, Middlesex hospital and Royal College of Surgeons. By year 3 she was let loose and allowed to treat the unsuspecting public in the college’s osteopathic clinic.
On graduation she worked as a locum in Kent, before moving to West Sussex.
Her career has been varied and very interesting. She has been privileged enough to work with many elite athletes and eminent orthopaedic surgeons. Although very physical, it is a rewarding, and enjoyable job, with most patients leaving her clinic happier and healthier.
She now works in a busy multidisciplinary clinic which includes six other osteopaths, an acupuncturist, a chiropodist and three remedial massage therapists.
