BIOL& 242 - Human Anatomy And Physiology II

5 Credits
The course is part two of a two-quarter sequence in which human anatomy and physiology are studied using a body systems approach, with emphasis on the interrelationships between form and function at the gross and microscopic levels of organization.  Anatomy & Physiology II is a continuation of Anatomy & Physiology I and includes: the endocrine system, the cardiovascular system, the lymphatic system and immunity; the respiratory system; the digestive system, metabolism, the urinary system; fluid/electrolyte and acid/base balance; and the reproductive systems.

Course Outline
  • This is part two of a two-quarter sequence in which human anatomy and physiology are studied using a body systems approach, with emphasis on the interrelationships between form and function at the gross and microscopic levels of organization.   
  • Anatomy & Physiology II includes: the endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems.  
  • Discussion of disease processes, bodily dysfunction, and diagnosis will be incorporated when appropriate.  


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.

Interpret graphs of anatomical and physiological data.

Demonstrate information literacy skills to access, evaluate, and use resources to stay current in the fields of anatomy and physiology.

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