AP2100 Human Physiology Section 2 Spring 2010 Instructor: Allison Kleiber, Ph.D. Contact information: 1436 Jones Hall 314-446-8575 [email protected] Office hours: MWF 11-12 or by appointment Laboratory Instructors: Allison Kleiber, Ph.D. Chaya Gopalan, Ph.D. Ruth Birch, Ph.D. Jamie Gotto, D.C. Margaret Weck, D.A. Semester Hours: 4 hours Lecture: 3 1-hr sessions per week (1590J) Laboratory lecture: 1 1-hr session per week (joint session, 4130W) Laboratory: 1 2-hr session per week (1410J) Course Description: This course is a survey of basic physiological principles. This course provides: 1) introduction to the basic thought processes underlying evidence-based medicine, 2) access to essential information for the knowledge base of a practicing pharmacist, and 3) the basic technical vocabulary for accurately describing physiological processes. In this course students are exposed to foundational information necessary for both rendering pharmaceutical care and for understanding their own health status. Understanding of these principles is accomplished through application of the principles to problems that include clinical case scenarios. We also practice and reinforce the information seeking and information interpreting skills, behaviors, and attitudes that are essential in the development of life-long learning habits. Laboratory work this semester includes: performance of classic exercises in animal physiology, performance of certain human clinical measurements, video and movie demonstrations. In addition to introducing factual material necessary to the working database of a practicing pharmacist, this course furthers student development of several important college outcomes. Emphasis this semester is placed on promoting the development of four of the College’s Ability Outcomes: 1) thinking and decision making, 2) written and oral communication abilities, 3) scientific competence, and 4) mathematical reasoning.

Course Objectives : Upon successful completion of this course (AP 2100) the student should be able to: 1. use appropriate technical and medical terminology to describe physiological conditions, 2. demonstrate understanding of technical terminology by being able to paraphrase physiological concepts into less technical forms, 3. clearly describe the normal operation of various physiological mechanisms at the sub- cellular, cellular, organ, organ system and whole organism levels, both in technical and non- technical terms, 4. translate graphical representations of data into verbal trend statements and correctly identify correct graphical representations of verbal trend statements, 5. calculate common diagnostic indices given the appropriate numeric information, 6. make accurate and reliable measurements while following published instructions, 7. routinely record measurements with correct units and determine whether conclusions are within the scope of a particular data set, 8. properly cite appropriate sources of information in formal reports and other written work, 9. gather information from the textbook, the laboratory manual, and first hand data

    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.
