BIO153 - Anatomy & Physiology 2

Credits: 4

Catalog Description: A continuation of Biology 152 and the comprehensive study of the anatomy and physiology of the human body. Systems studied include endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary and reproductive. Metabolic and regulatory pathways, including those involving fluids, electrolytes and acid/base balance, are an integral part of the course, along with homeostasis and feedback loops. 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 function. Pre-requisite: Successful completion of the Genesee Community College Math and Reading proficiencies and completion of Biology 152 with a C or better, within the last five years.

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 the methods biological scientists use to explore natural phenomena.
2. Apply appropriate technical terminology to describe anatomy and physiological processes.
3. Explain how tissue organization connects to specified body organs structure and function.
4. Identify human anatomical structures and features using various resources (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 how specified body systems interact with each other to maintain homeostasis.
8. Explain the role of various metabolic processes in maintaining homeostasis in the human organism (acid-base balance, fluids, electrolytes, etc.)
9. Apply the principle of homeostasis and feedback loops to control physiological systems in the human body.

Effective Term: Fall 2019
