Course Details

BIO313 Human Anatomy and Physiology I

This course, the first half of the two-term series in human biology, will explore the cellular and tissue levels of organization as well as the structure and function of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, and sensory systems of Homo sapiens. The pathological conditions associated with these systems will be addressed. You will learn to identify anatomical structures and recognize their important characteristics while gaining knowledge of anatomical and physiological terminology. Memorization of many facts and structures will be required, but practical applications of the material will also be stressed. Emphasis will be placed upon clinical applications and the levels of organization and control that permit homeostasis. Through this approach, students are expected to develop an understanding of how anatomy and physiology relate to pathology. Regardless of your career plans, this course will give you a deeper understanding of the most complex machine you will ever use...your body.
