This course will explore the structure and function of the human body. Lectures will follow a systemic approach, which means that the structure and function of the human body will be presented in the context of different organ systems (e.g., digestive, circulatory, skeletal). During the course students will be introduced to the major organ systems of the body, and by the end they will have the tools to appreciate human form and function in a more fully constructed and integrated manner.
The focus of the laboratory sessions will be to provide further understanding of information presented in lecture. During labs, students will perform several detailed dissections on nonhuman specimens (pig heart, cat), will view previously prepared dissections of human cadavers, and will be introduced to medical imaging techniques (X-ray, CT, MRI) as a means of understanding spatial relationships of structures in the body. The lab portion of this course will be taught using a more regional approach (e.g., thorax, abdomen, limbs).
It is strongly recommended that applicants successfully complete a basic course in high school biology prior to enrolling in this course.
