Human Anatomy & Physiology I


Credits: 5
Clock Hours per Quarter: 60

AA Discipline: [Natural Sciences]

Lecture Hours:40    Lab Hours:20


Description
This course is the first of a three quarter sequence which studies the structure and function of human body. This course is intended for Nursing and Allied Health majors in fulfillment of the pre-nursing (or health care related) lab science requirements. Topics include: introduction to the human body, histology and an examination of the skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems. Laboratory work may include mammalian dissections, model study and microscopy. Formerly BIO 210, Anatomy & Physiology I. Prerequisite: Grade of C or higher in BIOL& 160 or 211. Formerly BIO 210, Anatomy & Physiology I.

Intended Learning Outcomes
  • Identify the components of the skeletal, muscular and nervous systems and describe their location in anatomical terms.
  • Apply correct anatomical terminology to describe organs, tissues, body landmarks, cellular structures, and major body movements and to express direction and location in the body.
  • Use anatomical and physiological vocabulary to communicate, written and orally.
  • Recognize and describe the relationship between the anatomical structure of an organ and how it correlates to its function.
  • Observe and describe differences in tissue types to predict their role in the normal structure and functioning of an organ.
  • Relate the histology of the major body tissues to their functions in the body.
  • Describe the principle of homeostasis and the use of feedback loops to control physiological systems and explain how an inability to maintain homeostasis can lead to disease.
  • Explain and analyze the normal anatomy, functions, and mechanisms of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems and predict the effects of disease in those systems.
  • Use discipline-specific laboratory materials, such as dissection tools, models, and compound microscopes, to analyze the structure of tissues and preserved specimens.
