COURSE GOALS Competent practice of chiropractic, as with all health care professions, rests on a comprehensive knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the human body. This is as important for the Chiropractic Technologist, as it is for the Doctor of Chiropractic. This course, coupled with Anatomy and Physiology II, will begin building this foundation by acquainting the student with basic principles and terminology needed for both a structural and functional investigation of the human body. COMPETENCIES Attitude: Students are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner, e.g., are punctual and prepared for the day's scheduled topic; demonstrate a positive attitude, characteristic of Chiropractic and the Health Care profession; are well-groomed; are respectful of the opinions of others and ethical in their behavior. Knowledge: Students will learn the basic biological principles governing the function and structure of the human body, and will come to understand how the various hierarchical levels relate to one another. Specifically, upon completion of the course, the student will be able to: demonstrate a knowledge of basic anatomical terminology; explain fundamental concepts of chemistry; describe the anatomy and function of specific organelles found within a human cell; identify specific cellular organelles on prepared microscope slides; describe the anatomy and function of various tissues (i.e., epithelial, connective, muscular, and nervous tissues) within the human body; identify specific types of tissues on prepared microscope slides; describe the anatomy and function of the specific organs comprised by the
