PHYL 141 : Human Anatomy and Physiology I

PHYL 141 is the first semester of a comprehensive two-semester course which provides a thorough introduction to the structure and function of the human body. PHYL 141 covers the gross anatomy, histology, and physiology of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems. Students will be expected to learn details of anatomy and physiology as well as applying those details in the broader context of whole body function and homeostasis. The covered topics include body orientation, chemical level, cellular level, tissue level, integumentary system, bone tissue, skeletal system, joints, muscular tissue, muscular system, nervous tissue, spinal cord and spinal nerves, brain and cranial nerves, autonomic nervous system, and special senses.  Formerly ZOOL 141.

Credits:

3

Prerequisites:

A grade of C or better in HLTH 125 or BIOL 100, or concurrent registration in HLTH 125.

Student Learning Outcomes Are:

  • Identify required anatomical structures of the covered systems.
  • Identify required physiological functions of the covered systems.
  • Describe metabolic processes of covered systems and relate them to everyday activities such as eating, sleeping, and exercise.
  • Explain the concepts of positive/negative feedback and homeostasis and relate them to physiological processes covered in the course.

PHYL 141L : Human Anatomy and Physiology I Lab

PHYL 141L is the laboratory course of Human Anatomy and Physiology I and it provides a thorough introduction to the structure and function of the human body. PHYL 141L covers the gross anatomy, histology, and physiology of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems. Students will be expected to learn details of anatomy and physiology through models, dissections, and physiological experimentations. Students will also apply those details in the broader context of whole body function and homeostasis. The covered topics include body orientation, chemical level, cellular level, tissue level, integumentary system, bone tissue, skeletal system, joints, muscular tissue, muscular system, nervous tissue, spinal cord and spinal nerves, brain and cranial nerves, autonomic nervous system, and special senses. Formerly ZOOL 141L.

Credits:

1

Prerequisites:

Credit for or registration in PHYL 141.

Student Learning Outcomes Are:

  • Identify anatomical structures at the level of the cell, tissue, organ, and organ system through the use of models, computer images, observation, and dissections.
  • Apply the scientific method to study, measure, analyze, and understand the physiological systems of the human body.

PHYL 142 : Human Anatomy and Physiology II

PHYL 142 is the second semester of a comprehensive two-semester course which provides a thorough introduction to the structure and function of the human body. PHYL 142 covers the gross anatomy, histology, and physiology of the endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary, reproduction systems as well as basic concepts of inheritance and development. Students will be expected to learn details of anatomy and physiology as well as applying those details in the broader context of whole body function and homeostasis.  Formerly ZOOL 142.
