Course Aims

Chemistry and biology are closely related to the modern medicine. Physics, however, seems to be difficult to communicate with this multifaceted discipline.  The physics students rarely see the relationship between physics and medicine due to the numbers of historical physics course materials that exclude the treatment of physics applied to medicine. The present course is to teach the students in a simple way in understanding the correlations of physics and behaviour of the human body. The aim of this course is to reestablish the importance of physics in medical discipline to the student.  The course materials mainly cover the application of physics including temperature, light, sound, pressure, mechanics and electricity to medicine at elementary level.
