BIO-202 Human Anatomy and Physiology II

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

The course integrates the study of structure with function of the human body.  As a suite of courses, BIO-201 and 202 are intended for students interested in satisfying requirements for pharmacy and various allied health programs. The content and level of delivery of both BIO-201 and 202 are structured to be compatible with similar courses offered by cooperating institutions.  BIO-201 includes discussion of cellular, tissue, integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and neural systems.  It includes laboratory study of anatomical models of humans and skeletal components, and dissection of a cat.  BIO-202 includes discussion of endocrine, circulatory, immunological, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems.  Strongly emphasizes study of physiological functions that includes monitoring of body systems with analog and digital hardware.  Each course includes three hours lecture and three hours laboratory.  A competency exam covering basic chemistry and biology may be administered at the first class meeting and weighed in the final grade.  To begin the course sequence, the student must complete BIO-111 or the equivalent with a minimum grade of C or obtain permission of the instructor.  BIO-201 with minimum grade of C is a prerequisite for BIO-202.  [4 credits each term]

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

1. Describe the structure and function of the human body by studying basic biological principals.

2. Perform hands-on activities in the laboratory (structural anatomy) and correlate practical knowledge with background/theoretical information covered in lecture (both structure and function).

3. Affirm the student’s decision of pursuing a career in the life and health sciences.

COURSE REQUIREMENTS: 

  1. Lecture = Quizzes, exams, and participation
  2. Lab = Quizzes, practicals, participation, medical report, and medical presentation
