Human & Applied Physiology enables students to gain a theoretical and practical understanding of the functioning of the muscular, respiratory and cardiovascular systems at rest and during exercise, including the effects of extreme environmental conditions on whole body physiology. Leads to careers in teaching and research, medicine, physiotherapy, health services, physical education.

KEY BENEFITS
* The original and foremost programme in human and applied physiology in the UK.
* Training in a wide variety of practical laboratory skills pertaining to human physiology.
* A knowledge base of human physiology particularly relevant for careers in biomedical research and medicine.
* Lectures from world leading experts in a variety of different fields.
* Unique exposure of human physiology applied to aviation and military medicine only available at King's College London.
* Located in the heart of London.

PURPOSE
To equip graduate students in biomedical/life science and sport science with value added knowledge and skills that will enhance their understanding and expertise in human physiology in its broadest sense. For careers in academic research/teaching, medicine, physiotherapy, health services, sport science support, research posts in industry and Ministry of Defence research establishments.

DESCRIPTION
The programme is run by the Centre of Human & Aerospace Physiological Sciences/ Department of Physiology. The MSc provides a theoretical and practical basis for explaining the functioning of the muscular, respiratory and cardiovascular systems at rest and during exercise. This extends to the effects of extreme environmental conditions on whole body physiology.
Programme topics are studied from both systemic and cellular/molecular perspectives in order that students have a good understanding of the breadth of investigative approaches employed in human physiology research.
There is a focus on a practical work and planning/running experiments using human subjects.
