Catalog description: Anatomy and Physiology 101: This is an intensive study of the structure and function of the human body. The emphasis is homeostasis and the interrelationship among systems with discussions on selected pathologies. The first semester of the two part series covers the topics chemistry, histology, genetics and inheritance, and the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, digestive, and reproductive systems.
1. To discuss a basic understanding and working knowledge of the human body.
2. To outline the concepts of homeostasis and interdependence of all body systems.
3. To provide an introduction to the disruption of homeostasis (pathology) as contrasted with normal processes, particularly as they apply to the allied health occupations.
Course learning outcomes: As part of the requirements of accreditation Course Learning Outcomes (CLO) have been developed that represent examples of capstone outcomes that each course of Anatomy and Physiology 101 needs to become skilled at and evaluated in a standardized format. The three CLOs for this class are listed below. You will have a test on these as either a quiz during the semester or as part of the comprehensive examination.
SKIN, MUSCLES, DIGESTION
1. Describe the typical anatomy and physiology of the integument
