Develops a comprehensive understanding of the close interrelationship between anatomy and physiology as seen in the human organism. Introduces students to the cell, which is the basic structural and functional unit of all organisms, and covers tissues, integument, skeleton, muscular and nervous systems as an integrated unit.

MAJOR COURSE LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Upon successful completion of this course the student, through lecture and laboratory activities, will be expected to:

Revised Bloom’s Classification: Knowledge; Cognitive 

  1. correctly use proper clinical terminology to describe the anatomy and basic physiology of the human body (1-Factual; 1-Remember)
  2. properly identify structural features of human tissues and cells under light microscopy (1-Factual; 3-Apply)
  3. properly identify human gross anatomy structures and features in a laboratory/clinical setting (1-Factual; 3-Apply)
  4. explain the structural hierarchy and organizational levels of anatomical classification (2-Conceptual; 2-Understand)
  5. explain the interrelationship of structure and function in macroscopic and microscopic aspects of human anatomy (2-Conceptual; 4-Analyze)
  6. explain the anatomical interdependence of cells, tissues and organs (2-Conceptual; 2-Understand)
  7. describe the basic physiological processes essential to human life (2-Conceptual; 1-Remember)
  8. demonstrate professional and sensitive usage of language and behavior suited to clinical and laboratory settings (3-Procedural; 3-Apply)
  9. communicate mechanistic anatomical explanations in clear, concise, and accurate language in short answer formats (2-Conceptual; 4-Analyze)
  10. demonstrate foundational knowledge in cellular anatomy and physiology, general histology, chemistry and biochemistry for sufficient preparation to attempt APHY 102 ** (see detailed objectives for Bloom’s Taxa)
