Continues the study of the inter-relationships of the systems of the human body. Introduces students to the study of the endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary and reproductive systems.

MAJOR COURSE LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Upon successful completion of this course the student will be expected to:

  1. List the basic requirements of the human body to sustain life.
  2. Describe the structural hierarchy and levels of organization of the human body.
  3. Describe the structure and function of the human organ systems.
  4. Communicate in anatomical, directional, and medical terminology.
  5. Explain the relationship of anatomy and physiology to basic health and pathology.
  6. Identify and describe the structure, function, location, and secretions of the endocrine glands.
  7. Identify and describe the formation, composition, functions, and types of blood.
  8. Identify and describe the structure, function, and location of the heart and major blood vessels.
  9. Identify and describe the structure, pathways, and function of the lymphatic system.
  10. Identify and describe the structure and function of the respiratory system.
  11. Identify and describe the structure and function of the digestive system.
  12. Explain how nutrients function in metabolism, energy balance, and hormonal control.
  13. Identify and describe the structure and function of the urinary system, including fluid and electrolyte balance.
  14. Identify and describe the structure and function of the reproductive system.
  15. Demonstrate proper use and understanding of: laboratory safety procedures; laboratory equipment such as microscopes, dissecting instruments, and physiologic instrumentation; and analyses.
  16. Demonstrate dissection skills.
