In-depth Study of Human Anatomy and Physiology
This course sequence consists of three, 4-credit courses (total of 12 credits). Each course is offered every term and should be taken in order. Each course has lecture and laboratory components.
- Lectures focus on physiology and rely on lecture videos, exercises and assigned reading.
- Labs focus on anatomy studied from a 3D interactive anatomy program available online, images, drawings and lab videos introducing the anatomical parts of the system covered in the given week.
Weekly quizzes and tests reinforce learning and test student’s knowledge in both lecture and labs. A Proctor is required for examinations. See the syllabi for specific proctor information.
