There are correspondences between the physical body and the astrological chart. From ancient times to the Renaissance, medical doctors used these correspondences to help them in their practice. 

The purpose to this course is not to engage in medical practice as understood legally. But these traditional tools can help the astrologer  offer specialized services to their clients, mainly concerning the timing and circumstances of medical care provided by licensed practitioners.
