NORTHWESTERN CONNECTICUT COMMUNITY COLLEGE COURSE SYLLABUS Course Title: Anatomy and Physiology I Lecture Course #: BIO* 211 Course Description : This course is the first semester of a two-semester sequence designed to provide a comprehensive study of the structure and function of human body systems and their relationships to other systems. Anatomy and Physiology I covers the following topics: anatomical terminology, review of prerequisite biological and chemical principles, histology, integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems. Pathology examples are covered within body each system. Four semester hours. (3 hours of lecture and 3 hours of lab) Prerequisite : Prerequisite: BIO* 115 or BIO* 121 Prerequisite/Co-requisite: CHE 111or equivalent Goals: To provide the student with a comprehensive understanding of the structure and function of mammalian systems. To apply knowledge of cell biology to tissue and organ structure and function. To investigate and integrate the structure and function of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous system, especially as it pertains to movement. To consider disorders and clinical syndromes associated with specific systems as they pertain to both human and veterinary medicine. Outcomes : At the end of this course students should be able to: BODY PLAN & ORGANIZATION 1. Anatomical position 1. Describe a person in anatomical position. 2. Describe how to use the terms right and left in anatomical reference. 2. Body planes & sections 1. Identify the various planes in which a body might be dissected. 2. Describe the appearance of a body presented along various planes. 3. Body cavities & regions 1. Describe the location of the body cavities and identify the major organs found in each cavity. 2. Identify the location of the major anatomical regions of the body. 3. Describe the location of the four abdominopelvic quadrants and the nine abdominopelvic regions and list the major organs located in each. 4. Directional terms 1. Identify the major directional terms used in anatomy. 2. Describe the location of body structures, using appropriate
