Learning outcomes

Provide fundamental knowledge about:
1) Functions of organs of the human body on the basis of the physiology of the cells
2) Integration and regulation of the functions of the organs in the apparatus,
3) The relationship between the laws of chemistry and physics and physiology of cells, organs and apparatuses
4) Main physiological parameters of the healthy human.
