Anatomy and Physiology II
Summer 2017 quarter (Second Session)
Anatomy and Physiology I
Anatomy and Physiology is the study of the structure and functions of the organs and organ systems of a living body. Emphasis during the second session will focus on the unique workings of each organ system along with their contribution to the homeostatic balance of the body as a whole. The areas studied integrate biology and chemistry and will include: endocrine system, cardiovascular system, lymphatic and immune systems, respiratory systems, digestive system and metabolism, urinary system, and reproductive system. An emphasis will be placed on real-world applications, and active-learning exercises will be included along with laboratory experiences. Students will be guided through optional dissections of individual organs including the heart and kidney along with all organs systems of the fetal pig to supplement hands-on understanding. By the end of this course, students will have an even greater appreciation of the complexity and wonder of the human body.
