BIOL-210 - Human Anatomy & Physiology 1
Anatomy and Physiology 1 focuses on the structure and function of the human body. Homeostasis is the underlying theme. Related facts, principles, and concepts of chemistry and biochemistry are integrated where needed for increased understanding. This part of the course will include study of the cell and tissues, and the following systems: integumentary, skeletal, nervous, endocrine, and muscular. Prerequisite: BIOL-101 with a minimum grade of C or better within the last 5 years. The sequence of BIOL-210 and 211 is designed for premedical, paramedical, physical education, nursing, physical therapy, and other allied health students. Three hours lecture and three hours laboratory each week. Four credits. Four billable hours. Offered Spring, Summer and Fall terms. GENERAL EDUCATION

Course Objectives: 1. Develop a vocabulary of appropriate terminology to effectively communicate information related to the anatomy and physiology of the following body systems: integumentary, skeletal, nervous, endocrine, and muscular (GE1, GE2, GE3, GE4, GE5, GE6, GE7) 2. Identify and describe the microscopic and macroscopic anatomy of the structures involved in the above body systems (GE1, GE2, GE3, GE4, GE5, GE6, GE7) 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, GE2, GE3, GE4, GE5, GE6, GE7) 4. Describe the correlation of the above body systems with each other and describe their contributions to homeostasis (GE1, GE2, GE3, GE4, GE5, GE6, GE7) 5. Describe the diagnostic tools used in health care and how they are used to identify normal and abnormal anatomcial and physiological abnormalities (GE1, GE2, GE3, GE4, GE5, GE6, GE7) 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 (GE1, GE2, GE3, GE4, GE5, GE6, GE7) 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 (GE1, GE2, GE3, GE4, GE5, GE6, GE7) 8. Demonstrate laboratory procedures used to examine anatomical structures and evaluate physiological functions. (GE1, GE2, GE3, GE4, GE5, GE6, GE7) 9. Interpret graphs of anatomical and physiological data and calculate relevant physiological values (GE1, GE2, GE3, GE4, GE5)al values (GE3 PG2)
