COURSE CONTENT

Student Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
Untitled document
1.  Describe the structure and function of the major tissues, organs, and systems of the human body.
2.   Apply core concepts of anatomy and physiology to understanding the basis for some common medical conditions.
 

Objectives: Untitled document
Students will be able to:
1. Describe the scientific method and apply this knowledge to the course content; differentiate the scientific method from other modes of knowing.
2. Relate basic chemical concepts and cell structure to the function of organs.
3. Name the organ systems, identify the major organs, and describe their functions.
4. Summarize the structures and functions necessary to accomplish movement of the body.
5. Compare how body-wide communication is accomplished by the nervous and endocrine systems.
6. Name the factors essential for life, and describe how they are supplied, transported, and regulated inside the body.
7. Compare the various structures and processes used for defense against injury and infection.
8. Describe human reproductive structures and mechanisms.
9. Apply core concepts of anatomy and physiology to understanding the basis for some common medical conditions.
10. Perform basic physiological measurements such as EKG and blood pressure.
