Anatomy and Physiology Courses

 

 

 

 

Background

 

It is helpful for healers to have a good understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the human body. This helps us to understand what might be going on inside a client who comes to us for healing.

 

There has been a wide body of understanding of the human body for a long time and there are plenty of books around written in different styles which we can buy for our learning about it.

 

There might be times, however, when we need to show external organisations that we have a basic understanding of the human body and when we will be offered work if organisations have confidence in what we know. This is likely to be particularly relevant in the future as publicly funded healthcare centres embrace complementary and alternative therapies more widely than at present. In these situations, it might be helpful to be able to show attainment of acceptable qualifications as confirmation of what we have learned.

 

I give some possible distance learning solutions for anatomy and physiology on this page. I have spent some time researching this area but you might be able to find alternative solutions that you are happy with. Learning about anatomy does not involve the development of personal or social skills where it is helpful to be with a teacher face to face and can be undertaken easily by distance with learning times flexed around your daily work patterns.

 

 

 

 

Accreditation / Awarding Bodies

 

There are a number of accreditation or awarding bodies in the English education sector. They assess the quality and levels of courses offered by training organisations and institutions. The level of accreditation of a course can be an important factor in obtaining employment with employers and institutions in the healthcare sector. Please click here to read more about accreditation.

 

 

 

 

Courses which are not accredited

 

There are a number of distance learning courses available in Anatomy and Physiology which are recognised by some of the Alternative Therapy Professional Associations but which are not accredited by one of the Government approved Accreditation and Awarding Bodies. Could interested readers please note that such qualifications which do not have Government approved accreditation might not be recognised when applying for employment, particularly in UK public sector organisations.
