 Anatomy, Physiology and Human DIsease

 

Course Description:

 

This course provides an overview to the anatomical structures and physiology of the human body.
Each body system is discussed in terms of the major anatomical structures and function
including how each system participates in homeostasis of the body. 
In addition, the
course discusses selected major pathologies, including disease definitions and causes,
s
igns and symptoms, diagnostic procedures, and possible treatments. Finally, the course
discusses common issues and changes that occur in
each body system through the life span.
