To offer comprehensive continuing education courses and programs for the advancement of skills, knowledge and personal growth.
Introduces the anatomy and physiology of the human body. Emphasis is placed on the development of a systemic perspective of anatomical structures and physiological processes. Topics include body organization, cell structure and functions, tissue classifications, integumentary system, skeletal system, muscular system, and nervous and sensory systems.
1. Body Organization and Chemical Basis of Life
2. Cell Structure and Functions
3. Tissue Classifications
4. The Integumentary System
5. The Skeletal System
6. The Muscular System
7. The Nervous System
This course supports the ATC purpose by helping students to:
1. Define the terms anatomy and physiology.
2. Describe the basic biological functions necessary for survival. 3. Define anatomical position.
4. Identify descriptive body terms, planes-abdominopelvic regions and quadrants, directional terms as they relate to anatomical position, body membranes and cavities. 5. Discuss complementarity between structure and function. 6. Describe the various organizational levels of the human body. 7. Define homeostasis and metabolism.
8. Define positive and negative feedback cycles and provide examples of each.
Chemical Basis of Life
1. Describe basic atomic structure.
2. Define the terms molecule, element, compound, mixture, solution, solvent and solute and give examples of each. 3. Describe and give examples of covalent (non-polar and polar), ionic and hydrogen bonding. 4. Describe water as an inorganic...
