This is the first part of a two-semester study of the structure and function of the human body. Topics include homeostasis, basic chemistry, cell structure and function, tissues, and the following body systems: integumentary, skeletal, muscular, respiratory, and urinary. The laboratory component includes dissection, microscopy, and examination of 3-dimensional models. This course is for students preparing for Nursing , Surgical Technology , Physical Therapist Assistant , and other health-related professions. This course is inappropriate for students preparing for medicine or dentistry. Does not fulfill the lab science sequence requirement for most Math/Science students, but does fulfill the science elective requirement for Math/Science students. Students are expected to have mastered high school-level biology, chemistry, and algebra, or the college equivalents.
