Course Outline
Week one of the course is spent presenting an overview of the organization of the human body, anatomical terminology, homeostasis, and the organ systems. The remainder of the term is then spent covering most of the organ systems in greater detail. Lab exercises are designed to compliment and enhance the student’s understanding while providing them hands on laboratory experiences.

Student Learning Outcomes
Develop a vocabulary of appropriate terminology to effectively communicate information related to anatomy and physiology.

Identify the anatomical structures and explain the physiological functions of body systems.

Explain the principle of homeostasis and the use of feedback loops to control physiological systems in the human body.

Use anatomical knowledge to predict physiological consequences, and use knowledge of function to predict the features of anatomical structures.

Explain the interrelationships within and between anatomical and physiological systems of the human body.

Synthesize ideas to make a connection between knowledge of anatomy and physiology and real-world situations, including healthy lifestyle decisions and homeostatic imbalances.

Demonstrate laboratory procedures used to examine anatomical structures and evaluate physiological functions of each organ system.

Evaluate and examine issues related to anatomy and physiology from an evidence-based perspective.
