The entire human body will be covered in this 5 credit, 13 week course. The lecture portion of the class (physiology) will primarily focus on the functions of the humanbody at the cellular, tissue, organ and organ system levels. Since introductory biology (Bio 1510) 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 model-driven, with a few “wet lab” dissections. Due to the interdependence of structure and function, overlap between lecture and lab will be inevitable. 1| P a g e
Instructor’s MissionMy primary mission is to provide you a quality education. I will encourage you to develop strong study skills. I will constantly challenge you to think on a higher level. I will expect your best. And, most importantly, I will get you excited about anatomy and physiology. In return, I give you a guarantee that is inherent in my design of this course. If you “successfully” pass this course, you will move forward with an exceptional understanding of the human body. You will also have acquired the necessary skills to succeed at the highest of levels in the next phase of your studies. Course ExaminationsThere will be fourlecture exams as scheduled in the lecture outline. Each exam will consist of 60 multiple choice and true/false type questions and be worth 150 points (2.5 points per question). The lecture exams are not cumulative in the strict sense of the word. I will automatically drop the lowest score of your first three lecture exams. You must complete the course to qualify for this dropped exam option. Lecture Exam (IV) is a non-cumulative Final Exam. This exam cannot be dropped. There will be no make-up examsoffered. For whatever the reason you miss one of the first three lecture exams, this will simply be your dropped exam. The Final Exam is scheduled as designated in the Schedule of Classes for this term.
