In-depth Study of Human Anatomy and Physiology
This course sequence consists of three, 4-credit courses (total of 12 term credits), which is usually equivalent to 8 semester credits. Each course is offered every term and should be taken in order. Each course has lecture and lab components. Lectures focus on physiology and rely on lecture videos, exercises and assigned reading. Labs focus on anatomy studied from a 3D interactive anatomy program, images and drawings and lab videos. We use weekly quizzes and tests to reinforce learning and test student’s knowledge in both lecture and labs. A Proctor is required for examinations (four in each course), but is not required for quizzes.
This course includes the basic introductory cytology and histology and covers all of the body systems including integumentary, musculoskeletal, endocrine (BIO 231), nervous, cardiovascular, immune (BIO 232), digestive, respiratory, urinary, and reproductive systems (BIO 233). Acid-base balance, metabolism, human genetics and development are also studied.
There are no prerequisites, but some background in biology and chemistry is very helpful.
