What is Human Anatomy & Physiology I ?
This is the first semester of a comprehensive two semester course in Human Anatomy & Physiology (“A&P”). The course consists of about 60 topics, shown in the Course Schedule. The topics that we will study together include terminology, the “language” of anatomy and physiology, the integumentary system (which means the skin and its appendages), osteology (the study of bones), arthrology (the study of joints),
