Anatomy and Physiology I
Gain an introduction to the structure and function of the human body. Physiology is among the most fascinating and challenging areas of science, as it is the study of body function at the molecular, cellular, organ, and systemic levels. This course emphasizes how cells and tissues form organ systems—the mechanism of disease—and it provides an overview of several specific systems: the integumentary system and body membranes, the skeletal system, the muscular system, the nervous system, the senses, the endocrine system, and blood.
