Human development is one of the most exciting topics to study not only as a medical student, but also for our fundamental understanding of the human body. It is important at this stage of your studies to have a broad understanding of the timing of events in human development, so that you can understand normal development, organ development and when things go wrong (abnormal development). Many of the concepts introduced broadly today will be covered in detail in Beginnings, Growth and Development (BGDA).

- Understand the key divisions, events and timecourse of human development.
- Understand the concept of mixed embryonic origins of different tissues and organs.
- General understanding of the term “critical periods” of development.
