Martini (ISBN: 0805372989) (Lab) Fundamentals of Anatomy and Physiology: A Lab Guide with Cat Dissection, 3rd ed., by S.E. Ziemba (ISBN-10: 0757531962) Course Website: SI Instructor: Andrew Pavelescu ([email protected]) Course Description This is an intensive lecture/laboratory course that thoroughly covers the fundamental concepts and principles of human anatomy and physiology. The entire human body will be covered in this 5 credit, 16 week course. The lecture portion of the class (physiology) will primarily focus on the functions of the human body at the cellular, tissue, organ and organ system levels. Since introductory biology is a prerequisite, it is assumed that the student has a solid understanding of the atomic, molecular and cellular levels of organization . The laboratory portion of the class (anatomy) will primarily focus on identification of the structures that make up the human body. The majority of the laboratory exercises are wet-labs driven by cat dissections. Due to the interdependence of structure and function, overlap between lecture and lab will be inevitable.
Instructor’s Mission Although this course offers no major credit to biological science majors , it is well documented that the majority of students enrolled in this course are indeed majoring in biology and/or are pre-health students. Many students take this course as a preparatory course for nursing school or standardized exams such as the MCAT, PCAT and DAT. It should be noted that I have not specifically designed this course as a “review” for any of these aforementioned exams. This course was designed to provide the student, regardless of their career path, with a comprehensive understanding of the form and function of the human body.
