Summary

Do you need a basic medical vocabulary and knowledge of medicinal treatment of patients?

At this 2-day course, you get an introduction to the anatomy and physiology of the largest human organ systems as well as an understanding of the main diseases and current medical treatments.

After the course you will understand:

  • How the body is composed and functions from cells to organ systems.
  • The symptoms and signs of most common diseases.
  • How the body interacts with drugs and how drugs affect the body.

You will benefit greatly from this knowledge in your ongoing dialog with healthcare professionals (HCPs) and health scientific colleagues – and thereby you’ll contribute more effectively to your organisation’s value creation.


Teaching format

You will be taught by clinical experts from the healthcare system and the pharmaceutical industry. All are experienced in teaching this subject to both HCPs and non-health scientific professionals.

  • Anatomy and Physiology: mandatory online self-study tutorials prior to the classroom course days.
  • Pathology and Pharmacology: mainly instructor-led interactive classroom training. You can, however, also attend these sessions online.

Enroll now to gain a solid understanding of the human body’s main functions, diseases, and medical treatment solutions
