The four-part Anatomy & Physiology series provides a survey of the normal structure and functions of the human body, including microscopic and gross anatomy, as well as neuroanatomy.
Part 1: the introduction to body organization, anatomical terminology, basic chemistry and biochemistry, basic cytology and cellular metabolism, as well as an in-depth study of the anatomy and physiology of the skeletal and integumentary systems.
Part 2: joints, the muscular system and the nervous system. Students will be able to explain muscle types and function, identify muscles and their function, describe joints and their associated structures, and identify structures of the nervous system and how the system overall works.
Part 3: the anatomical structures and physiological functions of the endocrine and respiratory systems. The cardiac and circulatory system, blood, and lymph will also be discussed.
Part 4: the anatomical structure and physiological functions of the digestive system, urinary system, fluid and electrolytes, acid-base, reproductive system, pregnancy and genetics. Neurophysiology/neurochemistry are also covered.
