Anatomy & Physiology

  • Human Anatomy/Physiology is a study of the structure and function of the human body systems from the cellular level to the organism level; interactions within and between systems that maintain homeostasis in an organism; how personal choices, environmental factors, and genetic factors affect the human body. Laboratory experiences and text-based activities prepare the student for advanced biological studies, biomedical nursing, and other science-based careers. Additional topics include body functions in the healthy and diseased states; blood typing; muscle action; cranial nerve functioning; and bioethics.
