In this system-based anatomy course, students will examine the foundations of basic human anatomy for every major organ system and the relationships between systems; categorize the major functions and significance of each system, particularly from the perspective of a future healthcare worker; compare the relevance of organ system features in wellness and pathology, and engage in the study of anatomy from a system-based approach.
By the end of this course, students will be able to describe the major structures of the human body and their functions as part of the major organ systems.
Note For successful completion of this course, it is recommended that students are familiar with BIOL 125: Biology I, BIOL 126: Biology II or their equivalents.
