This course focuses on the fundamental principles of the structure, function, and organization of the human body through the study of major body systems including integumentary, nervous, the senses, endocrine, blood and cardiovascular. Medical terminology and pathology for systems is covered. Critical thinking based on the academic subject matter is developed and enables the incorporation of cognitive knowledge in the performance of psychomotor and affective domains. This course includes a laboratory component.

*On the first or second day of class, ALL students MUST locate their “vouchers” in the student kits. All students will then give their vouchers to their instructors for the “vouchered” supply items. Instructors will hand deliver all the student vouchers to the bookstore in order to receive the correct quantity of supply items. The bookstore will collect the vouchers for inventory purposes and they will not be returned to the instructor. The instructor will then maintain the vouchered supply items in the lab until the required item is needed. At that time the student will receive his or her vouchered supply items. This process will be guided by the instructor. Note: The instructor will always maintain the vouchered supply items for safety purposes.

**Students, following proper instruction, will place ALL biohazardous waste in the small biohazard bag provided in each student kit. All biohazardous waste will then be safely placed in the designated biohazard storage container. ALL sharps will be discarded in rigid/puncture proof sharps containers. This process will be guided by your instructor.
