This course offers an introduction to anatomy, physiology, pathology and hygiene of modern Western medicine. It is part of our professional training for Jamche-Kunye practitioners.
Anatomy is the branch of science which describes the structure of living organisms, including the development and internal workings of the body, as well as its tissues and cells. Physiology is the branch of science which describes the natural life processes, including the standard biochemical and biophysical function of living organisms. In other words, the study of how a healthy organism should behave. Pathology is the branch of science which describes the causes and condition of abnormal and pathological behavior of living organisms; the study and research related to the nature of disease. Hygiene is the study of disease prevention by means of establishing and maintaining certain conditions and practices conducive to health, particularly in regards to cleanliness and other precautionary measures to prevent the spread of infection disease.
