Anatomy and Physiology
The study of the structures of the human body at the chemical, cellular, tissue, organ and organ system levels.
Anatomy 001 - Introduction to Human Anatomy (4 units)
This course examines cells, tissues, and organs of these human systems: Integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, urinary, endocrine, lymphatic, and reproductive. Dissection of the cat and other mammalian organs are used in conjunction with human models in the study of human anatomy.
Physiology 001 - Introduction to Human Physiology (4 units)
This course is the study of the functions of the body. It covers all major systems of the body including the nervous, musculo-skeletal, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, urinary, endocrine, and reproductive systems. Emphasis is given to the interactions and integration of multi-systems which are required to maintain homeostasis which is essential for life. Microscopic examination of selected organs and tissues, as well as laboratory measurements of physiological functions are covered during the laboratory sessions.
Biology 020 - Human Anatomy and Physiology (8 units)
Physiology 006 - Anatomy and Physiology (6 units)
This course is the study of anatomy coupled with physiology. This class introduces the 11 organ systems, from microscopic to macroscopic level, while correlating how the 11 organ systems cooperate to maintain the normal operation of the body. PHYSIOL 6 is designed for majors in health information technology, medical records, and other health-related programs. The course introduces organ systems, from simple to complex, while correlating how the proper integration of these systems maintains the normal operation of the body. Laboratory sessions include group discussions and written assignments that highlight the significance of course material through the introduction of clinical applications. Cat dissection is not a part of this course.
