• Anatomy & Physiology: P2

    Instructor: Defina, A.

    The course in human anatomy and physiology presents students with an in depth view of the functional systems of the human body to include the nervous, endocrine, digestive, circulatory, respiratory, excretory, reproductive, and locomotive systems.  Throughout the course material, there is an emphasis on the coordinated interaction of physiological activities.  The topics incorporate the significance of the nervous and endocrine systems which regulate the responses between and within other systems.  Students examine each system from levels of cell specialization and organ structure.  The overall performance of the human body is viewed as an interconnected complex of structures working on molecular and gross levels.  The course exposes students to current biomedical and social environmental issues to enhance their understanding of health and human body related topics.  The course in Anatomy and Physiology will involve teacher directed presentations of content areas through class lecture, class discussion, student reports, investigations, and class group activities.  In addition, laboratory exercises will supplement and enhance topics dealing with both system functions (physiology) and system structure (anatomy).
