OVERVEIW: Anatomy and Physiology I is the first of a two-course sequence. It is a study of the structure and function of the human body including cells, tissues and organs of the following systems: integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous and special senses. Emphasis is on interrelationships among systems and regulation of physiological functions involved in maintaining homeostasis. The lab provides a hands-on learning experience for exploration of human system components and basic physiology. Systems to be studied include integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, and special senses. Diploma level anatomy and physiology course designed for students in Health Sciences or Health Care programs. Students will have the opportunity to study the human body and apply the knowledge through assignments, projects and class discussions. This course is suitable for admission to Health Care programs and may be considered for advanced standing.

Recommendation(s)You will have the most success in this course if you have already completed grade 11 biology or a college/university-level biology course before you start this course.

PRE-REQUISITES: Basic English Proficiency: TSI.CHEM, BIOL.

Instructional Goals and Purposes: The purpose of this course is to provide the student with an in-depth study of the anatomy and physiology (structure and function) of the human body. In so doing, the student will be educated in the core components/college student learning outcomes (listed above) and the course learning outcomes (listed below).

Outcomes: After studying all materials and resources presented in the course, the student will be able to: Lecture

1. Use anatomical terminology to identify and describe locations of major organs of each system covered.

2. Explain interrelationships among molecular, cellular, tissue and organ functions in each system.

3. Describe the interdependency and interactions of the systems.

4. Explain contributions of organs and systems to the maintenance of homeostasis.

5. Identify causes and effects of homeostatic imbalances.

6. Describe modern technology and tools used to study anatomy and physiology

Lab

1. Apply appropriate safety and ethical standards.

2. Locate and identify anatomical structures.

3. Appropriately utilize laboratory equipment, such as microscopes, dissection tools, general lab ware, physiology data acquisition systems, and virtual simulations.

4. Work collaboratively to perform experiments.

5. Demonstrate the steps involved in the scientific method.

6. Communicate results of scientific investigations, analyze data and formulate conclusions

7. Use critical thinking and scientific problem-solving skills, including, but not limited to, inferring, integrating, synthesizing, and summarizing, to make decisions, recommendations and predictions.

Course Content: A general description of lecture/discussion topics included in this course are listed in the Learning Outcomes section of this syllabus.
