This course will provide students with an introduction to the anatomy and physiology of the human body including the structure and function of human cells, tissues and organs. An emphasis on human anatomy with an associated introduction to physiology provides the foundation knowledge for subsequent studies in physiology and other health related courses.
An organ systems approach is used in this course to study the anatomy and physiology of healthy people. Body systems covered in this course include cardiovascular system, blood, lymphatic and immune systems, respiratory system, digestive system, urinary system, integumentary system, musculoskeletal system, and an introduction to the nervous and endocrine systems.
