BIOL 2020 - Human Anatomy and Physiology II

Credit hours: 4

Prerequisites: BIOL 2010 with a grade of “C” or higher.

Course Description:
A continuation of BIOL 2010 designed primarily for students interested in health-related fields that will count as a biology elective. Topics include the cardiac, vascular, hematologic, respiratory, immune, urinary, digestive, reproductive, and endocrine systems.

Student Learning Outcomes:
Students will be able to:

  1. Identify by the name, and describe the location, gross and microscopic structure and physical interrelationships of all organs covered in the course.
  2. Describe the function of the cardiovascular, respiratory, hematologic, lymphatic/immune, digestive, urinary, endocrine and reproductive systems, as well as the concepts of fluid, electrolyte and acid-base balance.
  3. Analyze the concept of homeostasis and the logical and critical interdependence of the body’s organs and organ systems.
  4. Appraise how structure denotes function and function denotes structure at the gross and cellular levels in the organ systems studied.
  5. Apply acquired knowledge of normal anatomy and physiology of the organ systems studied to make predictions, at the gross and microscopic levels of the effects of altered (abnormal) structure and function.
  6. Formulate a hypothesis concerning normal and altered physiology. Conduct an experiment that tests the hypothesis. Analyze and explain the results.
