BI 231 - Human Anatomy and Physiology 1

4 Credit(s)

Foundational first course in anatomy/physiology. Topics include human body organization, histology and the integumentary, skeletal, articular, and muscular body systems; nervous system fundamentals and autonomic nervous system. Common clinical applications associated with these topics are presented. May be offered online. Lab included.

Prerequisite: Grade of C- or better in BI 112  and CH 112 .
Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student should be able to:

  1. Develop a vocabulary of appropriate terminology to effectively communicate information related to anatomy and physiology.
  2. Recognize the anatomical structures and explain the physiological functions of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, articular body systems and the autonomic nervous system.
  3. Recognize and explain the principle of homeostasis and the use of feedback loops to control physiological systems in the human body.
  4. Utilize anatomical knowledge to predict physiological consequences, and apply knowledge of function to predict the features of anatomical structures.
  5. Demonstrate laboratory procedures used to examine anatomical structures and evaluate physiological functions of the organ system covered including histology, bone marking identification, gross musculature, neural anatomy and membrane physiology.
  6. Utilize microscopes to identify specific tissues and structures in histology.
  7. Interpret anatomical and physiological data and graphs regarding homeostasis, muscle and neural physiology.
  8. Approach and examine issues related to the integument system, skeletal, muscle and neural physiology and autonomic nervous system from an evidence based perspective.
  9.  Synthesize ideas to make a connection between knowledge of cell biology, chemistry and anatomy and physiology and real-world situations, including healthy lifestyle decisions and homeostatic imbalances.
