Course Description

This course is the first semester of a lecture and laboratory sequence in human anatomy and physiology. The course provides a comprehensive study of human structure and function. Topics include anatomical terminology, cellular processes, tissue classification, organ system functions, and development. Clinical applications of anatomy are also introduced. The laboratory component of the course parallels and reinforces lecture concepts through the use of models, histological slides, and dissection of animal specimens. This course covers the characteristics of hazardous wastes and its safe handling, storage, and disposal.
