Survey of Anatomy and Physiology

The Survey of Anatomy & Physiology course is a primer to the major anatomical structures of the human body systems. Intended as a basic introduction to anatomy and physiology, this course takes students through fundamental anatomical terms and basic cellular biology as applied to the structure and function of several organ systems that make up the human body. Throughout this course, students will explore the essential principles of human anatomy and physiology including the basic chemistry, cell and tissue composition and an overview of the all of the body systems. Designed as a foundation for allied health students, the Survey of Anatomy and Physiology course will provide students with the essential understanding of the various organs of the body, their structure and location within the human body as well as their individual function and collective interaction with other parts of the body as part of multiple, interconnected and complex systems.

This course is meant to provide a survey of homeostasis of the body as well as the various structures and functions that keep it working. Body systems include the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, male and female reproductive, digestive, respiratory, lymphatic, and urinary systems. Intended as a survey course for certain allied health programs, this course is a great introduction to the healthcare fields and provides a significant foundation from which students can launch their allied health education. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to identify and describe the anatomy, and demonstrate an understanding of the physiology of the human body at the molecular, cellular, tissue and organ system levels.

The Survey of Anatomy & Physiology course will address the following primary course objectives:

  • Describe the organization of the human body
  • Describe the major anatomical structures and functions of each body system
  • Explain the contribution that each body system makes to homeostasis of the body
