Instructional delivery format: 
Traditional classroom model
Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: identify gross and microscopic components of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems; anatomical and physiological terminology; explain the how structures (anatomy) of these components support their functions (physiology) at the molecular, cellular, tissue, and organ/organ system levels; apply the concept of homeostasis to human physiological activity; identify major organic and inorganic chemicals as they relate to the human body; describe cellular structure and cellular activity; discuss anatomical and physiological features of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous and sensory systems; evaluate select pathological conditions as they relate to normal functioning of the above-named systems; and assess for features of biochemical and cellular physiology, as well as neuronal integration of various body processes.

Instruction: 

The course provides students with knowledge of the structure and function of the human body. Major topics include: organization and general plan of the body; basic chemistry; cells; tissues and membranes; the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, circulatory, cardiovascular, lymphatic, immunologic, respiratory, digestive, reproductive, and renal systems; special senses; fluid electrolytes and acid-base; human development and genetics; and an overview of microbiology and human disease.
