A&P 318: Human Anatomy and Physiology-I (Section-2) College of Arts & Sciences Syllabus COURSE INFORMATION Credit Hours: 4 Course Description: This is the first course in a two course series of human anatomy and physiology. It will provide a foundation of anatomical terms and explain structure-function relationships of tissues and organs. The course will focus on the anatomy and physiology of integumentary, skeletal, muscular and nervous systems. Interaction and regulation of various systems to maintain homeostasis will be studied. In the lab component, students will get hands on experience with a human cadaver. They will examine and identify each system studied in class. Wherever possible, histology of tissues will be studied. Pathological conditions of each system will be discussed, including recent advances in treatment. Course Prerequisites: BIO-150 minimum grade of C and BIO-201 minimum grade of C and BIO-202minimum grade of C and BIO-301 minimum grade of C Class Hours, Building(s), and Classroom(s): Lecture: TR (10:50am-12:05 pm) @ BBH-101 Lab: R (12:15-2:55 pm) @ BBH-331 FACULTY INFORMATION Instructor: Nawaf Habib Office Location: BBH-358C Office hours: T,R,F (9:30-10:30 am) Phone extension: X5720 Email: [email protected] COURSE MATERIALS List of Required Texts / Materials: Human Anatomy and Physiology by Marieb and Hoehn, 10 th ed., Pearson Publishers Lab manual: The lab manual is provided free of charge, as weekly handouts posted on masteringaandp.

their own work. Each student is expected to show the dissection performed or the results of physiology experiment to the instructor before leaving the class. Students will require lab coats for the cadaver lab. Safety glasses and gloves will be provided COURSE OBJECTIVES / STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES This class is designed for pre-health students to prepare them for professional health-related schools and jobs. At the end of the semester, the students should: 1- Develop a vocabulary of appropriate terminology to effectively communicate information related to the anatomy and physiology of the following body systems: Integumentary, skeletal, muscular and nervous 2- Identify and describe the microscopic and macroscopic anatomy of the structures involved in the above body systems 3- Demonstrate an understanding of the relationship between anatomy and physiology by using anatomical knowledge to predict physiological consequences, and using knowledge of function to predict the features of anatomical structures 4- Demonstrate information literacy skills to access, evaluate, and use various scientific resources to approach and examine current health and medical issues from an evidence- based perspective 5-

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
