Objective

Course is an important part of the basic studies related to Physical Education and Physiotherapy.
As a participant of this course, you will concern yourself to the Physiology of a healthy human body as well as to the basic components of Exercise Physiology such as, training and assessment of different fields of physical fitness.
When you have passed this course, you`ll understand how the healthy human body behaves during different situations in life and you will be equipped with tools that you will need in the later phases of your studies as well as in the working life.

Learning outcomes:
You are able to analyze functioning and limitations, specially locomotive ability.
You understand the basic concepts related to Physiology and Exercise Physiology
You are able to define the structures and functions of the important organs and maintenance systems of the human body during rest and exercise.
You are able to explain the basic functions and capacities of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems and their relationship to Physical Fitness and training.
You understand how these maintenance systems are controlled and how they interact during Physical activity.

Competences:
Assessment Competence
Guidance And Counselling Competence
Therapy Competence
Internationality skills
