Description
This course is the third of a three quarter sequence which studies the structure and function of the human body. This course is intended for Nursing and Allied Health majors in fulfillment of the pre-nursing (or health care related) program lab science requirements; however, it may be used in order to fulfill general education lab science requirements. Topics include an examination of the following: reproductive system, embryology, the special senses, lymphatic and immune systems, metabolism, and fluids and electrolyte balance. Laboratory work may include mammalian dissections, study of models, and microscopy. Formerly BIO 211, Anatomy & Physiology III. Prerequisite: Grade of C or higher in BIOL& 251. Concurrent enrollment in BIOL& 252 allowed with instructor permission.

Intended Learning Outcomes
  • Apply major terms, vocabulary, methods and concepts relevant to anatomy and physiology.
  • Explain how the major concepts of metabolism and the study of fluid and electrolyte balance relate to the major body systems.
  • Use anatomical and physiological vocabulary in oral and written communication.
  • Explain the structure of the human body with respect to the reproductive, lymphatic and immune systems as well as embryology, special senses and metabolism.
  • Analyze the normal anatomy, functions, and mechanisms of the reproductive, lymphatic, and immune systems, and predict the effects of disease in those systems.
  • Analyze fluids and tissues.
  • Use discipline-specific laboratory materials such as dissection tools, models, and compound microscopes to analyze the structure of tissues and preserved specimens.
