BIO152 - Anatomy & Physiology 1

Credits: 4

Catalog Description: The first course of a 2-semester comprehensive study of the anatomy and physiology of the human body. The course focuses on the integumentary skeletal, muscular and nervous systems. Studies body organization, anatomical terminology, and foundations of histology. Emphasis is on form and function, and the role that negative feedback and homeostasis play in the control of the human body. The course is designed using Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) Learning outcomes. Laboratory study includes microscope work, organ and animal dissection, and exercises designed to illustrate normal anatomy and physiology. Pre-requisite: Successful completion of the Genesee Community College Math and Reading proficiencies and BIO 104 or BIO 115 completed with a grade of ā€œCā€ or better within the last five years, or acceptance into a health care career program.

Lecture: 3 hrs.

Lab: 3 hrs.

Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs):
Upon the successful completion of this course, a student will be able to:
1. Identify methods biological scientists use to explore natural phenomena.
2. Use appropriate anatomy and physiology terminology.
3. Identify and describe the tissues as specified in class.
4. Identify human anatomical structures and features using available resources in class (models, diagrams, dissected organs, microscope slides, etc.)
5. Explain the physiological processes that occur in the selected organ systems.
6. Identify and describe the interrelationships between structure and function in the selected organ systems.
7. Explain the principle of homeostasis as it relates to selected body systems.
8. Describe how feedback loops are used to control selected body systems.
