ANAT 14 Introduction to Human Anatomy and Physiology (4)
Credit, Degree Applicable
An integrated course covering the fundamental principles of human anatomy and physiology.
After successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Outcome 1: Understand and apply the scientific method to anatomy and physiology based experiments. This includes conducting experiments, analyzing data, and drawing conclusions from these data.
- Outcome 2: Demonstrate the possession of basic laboratory skills, techniques, and procedures of elementary anatomy and physiology. This includes the use of microscopes, and computers.
- Outcome 3: Define the major terms used to describe the levels of organization of life (atoms, molecules, organelles, cells, tissues, organs, organ systems, and organism).
- Outcome 4: Compare and contrast the structure and function of major organic molecules (nucleic acids, proteins, carbohydrates, lipids).
- Outcome 5: Define and list the major cell organelles.
- Outcome 6: Identify specific cell types and their unique sub-cellular components.
- Outcome 7: Explain the concept of homeostasis and why the inability to maintain homeostasis leads to disorders.
- Outcome 8: Define ""feedback systems"" and explain their role in homeostasis.
- Outcome 9: List and locate the principal body cavities and their major organs.
- Outcome 10: Identify the location and gross anatomy of the organs comprising human organ systems using models and dissection material.
- Outcome 11: Understand the basic physiological processes employed by human organ systems.
- Outcome 12: Understand how physiological mechanisms may change in situations of disease, trauma or degeneration.
