HUMAN ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY ANAT 150 SYLLABUS Anatomy and physiology form the foundation for health-related professions, as Geography is to History. This course is not intended to make you an Anatomist-physiologist, but I assure you that your horizon will be expanded to the infinite. You will be aware of how intricate, complex, and marvelous the human body is. This course will organize your curiosity and desire for health- related applicable knowledge. There are different ways to approach the study of Anatomy, but if we include Physiology, the systematic approach is the most effective.

    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.
