The parts of human body structure are called body parts. The three main parts of the body are: the head, the trunk and the limbs (arms and legs). The body parts can be divided into two categories: internal body parts such as brain, lungs, hearth and external body parts such as ears, eyes and skin.

- The people who help or study on body health are called physiologists, anatomists, doctors and nurses.
- Circulatory system, digestive system, musculoskeletal system and nervous system and some other systems are called body systems. They are groups of organs and tissues working together for particular functions of the body.
