Anatomy and Physiology I                                  4 credits

This course is the first part of a two-semester sequence in which human anatomy and physiology are studied using a body systems’ framework, while emphasizing the interrelationships between organ systems and between form and function at the gross and microscopic levels. This segment of the course covers basic anatomical and directional anatomy, the organizational levels and chemical basis of life, fundamental concepts of the cell and cellular metabolism, histology, acid/base and fluid electrolyte- balance, the integument, skeletal and muscular systems, nervous systems, and the special senses. Clinical correlation and interaction between body systems on the microscopic and gross levels is emphasized.
