Course Abstract Details

BIOL-211, Human Anatomy and Physiology 2

Credits: 4

Course Description

BIOL-211, Anatomy and Physiology 2, provides further study of the structure and function of
the human body. The circulatory, lymphatic/immune, respiratory, excretory, digestive, and
reproductive systems will be emphasized in this term with an emphasis on structure and function from the microscopic to the macroscopic level of organization. Prerequisite: BIOL-210 with a C grade or better within the last five years. Credit by exam available. Three hours lecture, three hours laboratory each week. Four credits. Four billable hours.

Course Objectives and Grading Information

COURSE OBJECTIVES:
1. Develop a vocabulary of appropriate terminology to effectively communicate information related to the anatomy and physiology of the following body systems: cardiovascular, lymphatic/immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive (GE1, PG3)
2. Identify and describe the microscopic and macroscopic anatomy of the structures involved in the above body systems (GE1, PG3)
3. Qualitatively and quantitatively describe the normal physiological functions of the structures involved in the above body systems, being sure to integrate basic knowledge of
chemistry, mathematics, physics and cellular biology where appropriate (GE1, PG3)
4. Describe the correlation of the above body systems with each other and describe their contributions to homeostasis (GE1, GE2, GE3;PG2, PG3)
5. Describe the various tools used in health care and how they are used in the diagnosis and cure of pathological conditions (GE1, GE2, GE3; PG3)
6. Demonstrate an understanding of the relationship between anatomy and physiology by using anatomical knowledge to predict physiological consequences, and using knowledge of function to predict the features of anatomical structures (GE2, GE3; PG2, PG3)
7. Demonstrate information literacy skills to access, evaluate, and use various scientific resources to approach and examine current health and medical issues from an evidence-based perspective (GE3, GE4, GE7; PG1, PG2)
8. Demonstrate laboratory procedures used to examine anatomical structures and evaluate physiological functions of the cardiovascular, respiratory, and urinary body systems (GE3; PG2, PG4)
9. Interpret graphs of anatomical and physiological data and calculate relevant physiological values (GE3; PG,2)

COURSE OBJECTIVES Upon completion of this course, students should be able to:

1. Describe each system of the human body covered in this course: Cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems. (GE1, PG4)

2. Describe the normal functions of the components of these systems on the cellular and organ levels. (GE1, GE3, PG4)

3. Integrate a basic knowledge of chemistry and biochemistry with human physiology. (GE1, GE2, GE3, PG3, PG4)

4. Describe the correlation of all the body systems with each other and their contributions to homeostasis. (GE1, GE2, GE3, GE5, PG1, PG4)

5. Describe the various tools used in health care and how they are used in the diagnosis and cure of pathological conditions. (GE1, GE2, GE3, GE4, GE5, GE6, GE7, PG3, PG4)

6. Research information related to the topics studied from various scientific sources. (GE1, GE3, GE4, GE6)
