BSC 1084C  Essentials of Human Anatomy & Physiology credits: 4

This one semester combined lecture/laboratory course is a study of the general and specific structural anatomy and physiology of the human, including the requisite principles of chemistry that influence homeostasis. The systems approach is used incorporating chemical functions with human structure, from the cell to the entire organism. Each system is presented in sufficient depth to provide a comprehensive understanding of systems for students in the life and health sciences. The systems covered include integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, reproductive, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, immune, respiratory, digestive, and urinary. This course is not intended for pre-nursing, pharmacy, dentistry, medicine, physician assistant, dental hygiene students or biology majors. Health program director approval is advised for other programs. (Note: This course cannot be substituted for BSC 2085/2085L and/or BSC 2086/2086L and it may not satisfy pre-entry requirements for certain health programs.)
