Human Anatomy

SCU student looking through textbook

Description: This course is a rigorous anatomy course designed for health sciences and physical education majors. It covers the gross and microscopic anatomy of the human body. Course topics begin with an introduction of anatomical terminology and tissue classifications, followed by the structural and functional anatomy of the organ systems (integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary and reproductive systems). A structure-function approach provides the background to achieve the learning objectives for the course, which are concepts necessary in understanding the human body and in professions such as medicine, physician assistant, chiropractic, dental hygiene, pharmacy, nursing, physical therapy, sports and leisure studies, and other medical related fields. Laboratory includes work with microscope, Anatomage table, human body models, and cadavers.

Registration for this course includes lecture (BIO251) and lab (BIO251L).
