Course This course provides an introduction to the principles of human anatomy and physiology. It covers
Description: the basic information necessary for a general understanding of the structures of the human body and their
functioning. The relationship between structure and function is emphasized.
Course Upon successful completion of the course, students are expected to be able to:
Demonstrate a familiarity with basic anatomical terminology.
Explain the relationship between structure and function.
Demonstrate an understanding of the concept of homeostasis.
Identify the systems of the body and locate and describe the structure of their major organs.
Explain some mechanisms used by each system of the body to maintain homeostasis and some
inter-relationships between the systems.
Course You are expected to attend all classes, to be on time, and to have read the material to be covered
Policies: before coming to class. You are responsible for all of the material presented, regardless of absence.
You are expected to turn off your cell phone during class. If you are using your phone or text messaging
during class, you will be asked to leave.
Cheating is NOT tolerated. Anyone I observe giving information to, or accepting information from another

unannounced quizzes. Three written exams will be given throughout the semester and will be based on the
reading and lecture material. Students who are unable to take the exam at the scheduled time must obtain
prior permission to take the exam at another time. Makeup exams will be given only under extenuating
circumstances and at my discretion. The format of a makeup exam may differ from the format of the
original exam. A cumulative final exam will be given during finals week. Extra credit work is not available
