The sequence is designed to provide the student with a thorough understanding of the structure and function of the human body. Upon successful completion of this course, students will have demonstrated the following competencies in each of the following Learning Objectives categories: 1. Critical Thinking/Problem Solving Skills: Analyze a problem using the scientific method. Gather and analyze scientific data using a variety of laboratory equipment and computers. Design an experiment to test the validity of a hypothesis. 2. Communication Skills: Demonstrate how to locate scientific information, collect data, and convey the results to peers. 3. Cultural Perspective: Describe how physiological processes influence general health and well-being. 4. Breadth of Knowledge and Intellectual Perspective: Define the terms and concepts that form the core of Anatomy and Physiology and describe how these terms, concepts and principles interact in the human body. Describe the structure of the cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems in the human body and explain how the structure of each contributes to its function. Describe the interrelationships among the organ systems of the body and the role each system plays in establishing and maintaining homeostasis. Describe how physiological mechanisms work in the functioning of the human body. OUTCOME ASSESSMENTS: Critical thinking/problem solving skills will be assessed by 5 lecture exams and interpretation of lab data via the 9 “weekly” lab quizzes and the 3 major lab exams. Communication skills will be assessed through informal discussion of laboratory results, as well as written responses to the questions on the 9 “weekly” lab quizzes. Cultural perspectives will be addressed through informal discussions in both lecture and labs regarding
