The students will:
1.  Deepen their appreciation for the design and workings of the
   human body.
2.  Especially for future healthcare workers, establish a basis for
   greater awareness of, confidence in, and understanding of situations
   and procedures with which such individuals will be confronted
   in medically-related settings.
3.  Further their awareness of the need for thoroughness and diligence
   in the pursuit of excellence in any discipline.
Specific, behaviorally-orientated learning objectives for each module
are on file in the SRJC Community Health Education Center. Their bulk
prohibits their attachment to this outline.
