BIO 3051 - Human Physiology and Anatomy II: Organ Systems

Credits: 4
Formerly: Comparative Anatomy and Physiology II
Human Physiology & Anatomy II involves studying the evolution and mechanisms of human body form & function from genes to organ systems to the whole organism interacting with our environment. Course goals include fostering greater appreciation for the universal functions and principles shared by all animals and the importance of such knowledge to the advancement of medical science. The course is meant to be a continuation of Hum Phys & Anatomy I (BIO3050) with the focus of lecture placed largely on human integumentary, muscular, skeletal, urinary, reproductive, digestive, cardiovascular, lymphatic and immune system structure & function. In laboratory, students utilize a combination of classroom discussions, anatomical models, palpation (surface anatomy), nerve/muscle associations, dissections of preserved material, computer software, musculoskeletal analysis of movements, readings, and critical reviews (writing and discussion) of scientific literature relevant to the discipline in order to become proficient in structure/function relationships including medical perspectives. Lab time will also be dedicated to in-class discussions and student presentations of selected readings. 3 hours of lecture and 1 lab period per week.
Prerequisite(s): BIO 1027  or BIO 1025 , BIO 1028 BIO 3050   or consent of instructor.
Corequisite(s): BIO 3051L
3 hours lecture, 3 hours lab
