Anatomy and Physiology

Section #: 5276

Anatomy & Physiology is a course in which students investigate and apply concepts associated with human anatomy and physiology. Concepts covered include the process of homeostasis and the essentials of human function at the level of genes, cells, tissues, and organ systems. Students will understand the structure, organization, and function of the various components of the healthy human body in order to apply this knowledge in all health-related fields.

This is a senior level course and will rely on students prerequisite knowledge of physics, chemistry, and biology (especially cell biology and genetics) throughout the course. Activities developing skills in reading and writing scientifically will be leveraged in the course. We will also consider course topics in an evolutionary and medical science context. This course uses an integrative approach and will give students a robust grounding in the scientific understanding of human anatomy & physiology.
