A 20-week course that introduces human anatomy and physiology for those students who are interested in the health sciences and/or human biology in general. Topics covered in the first quarter will include homeostasis, review of basic chemistry, basic cell structure, and the study of the integumentary, muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems, in addition to introducing the senses and special senses. The second quarter covers the endocrine, reproductive, respiratory, cardiovascular, urinary and digestive systems. An extensive laboratory component is incorporated in this course to familiarize you with anatomy and physiology through the study of anatomical models, dissections, histology investigations, physiology demonstrations, and experiments using physiology equipment. In the laboratory, you will develop critical thinking skills as you assess your own scientific discoveries and use the scientific method.
