Student Learning Outcomes
Meets Mn Transfer Curriculum Goal Area 3 - Natural Sciences. Human anatomy and physiology is the study of the structure and function of the human body. Utilizing a solid base of general biological knowledge students will study the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous systems and special senses. In addition to these basic areas of study, histology will be covered in general and in detail as it relates to each of the above organ systems. This class includes a laboratory (lab) component.Student Learning Outcomes
- Demonstrate proficiency with standard anatomical terminology.
- Identify anatomical structures of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, and sensory systems.
- Explain functions of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, and sensory systems from the molecular through the systemic levels of complexity.
- Describe the relationship between the anatomy and physiology of organ systems.
- Classify tissue types by structure, function, and location.
- Describe homeostatic mechanisms.
- Identify common pathophysiology within each organ system.
- Summarize the effect of aging on the systems covered in class.
- Apply the scientific method to the study of human anatomy and physiology.
- Communicate experimental findings.
