Unlike most anatomical systems in the human body the reproductive systems in the male and female are completely different in structure and function but both work together to play a vital role in the production of an offspring. This free online course enables the learner to explore the structure and functions of the human reproductive system. It explains the necessity for reproduction and provides an understanding of how offspring develop. It describes the structure and functions of all the organs involved in the male and female reproduction systems and it outlines the different types of cells involved in the process of fertilization. It also describes the function of the mammary glands. Finally, it reviews the parturition of the fetus, describing the different phases up to child birth and post-child birth. This free online course will be of great interest to all students of biology, anatomy and physiology, and healthcare professionals who would like to further their knowledge and understanding of the human reproductive system and the processes involved in it.
