This is the second in a sequence of two intensive anatomy and physiology courses intending to cover the human body as an integrated whole by examining the structures and functions of each body system as well as some of the common diseases associated with each system. Integration of the body’s systems is emphasized by examining how each of these systems interacts with the body’s other systems in order to maintain homeostasis. Laboratory activities will include dissections, computer labs, anatomical models, and brief scientific experimentation. Study within this course includes the following systems: cardiovascular (including blood), lymphatic and immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive.

Prerequisite: Successful completion (2.0 or better) in BIO 210
