: The Introduction to Anatomy & Physiology course will familiarize students with the structures and functions of the human body. Anatomy describes the structures of the body – their scientific names, location, composition and associated structures – and offers a map of the human body for students. Physiology, on the other hand, studies the function of each structure, individuals and in combination with the other structures. As students examine each part of the body during this course, they’ll discover how Anatomy and Physiology always work together and will continually focus on both the structure and function of body.
The Introduction to Anatomy & Physiology course provides an overview of common medical terminology and presents the major anatomical structures of the human body systems. It also explores the basic physiological processes of each system, discussing how body systems work together. Finally, the course explores how each system participates in homeostasis of the body. Body systems discussed in this course include the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, male and female reproductive, digestive, respiratory, lymphatic, and urinary systems.
The Introduction to Anatomy & Physiology course will address the following primary course objectives:
Describe the organization of the human body
Explain the contribution that each body system makes to homeostasis of the body
Identify the major anatomical structures of each body system and their purposes
Explain basic physiological processes in each of the body systemsInstructor Description
