Human Anatomy and Physiology is a full-year course in which human anatomy and physiology is studied using a body systems approach, with an emphasis on the interrelationships between form and function at the gross and microscopic levels of organization. The course includes: basic anatomical and directional terminology; fundamental concepts and principles of cell biology; histology; the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems; special senses and the endocrine system. The course will involve a significant amount of laboratory work (one double period per week). The lab experiences will include exercises that demonstrate both anatomical and physiological concepts. The course will be supplemented with field trips to provide real world experiences. This elective course may be used to satisfy the basic graduation requirement of two laboratory sciences.
