BIOL 204 Anatomy and Physiology II

This is the second course in a sequential two-semester learning program which provides an in-depth study of the anatomy and physiology of human body systems (BIOL 203 and BIOL 204). Topics studied are the cardiovascular, lymphatic, immune, respiratory, urinary, and reproductive systems and fluid, electrolyte, and acid base balance. The laboratory program reinforces and provides hands-on study of these body systems. The laboratory will utilize organ and animal dissections as well as models, histology slides, and experimental studies of physiological processes.

Prerequisite

BIOL 203

Hours Weekly

3 hours lecture, 3 hours lab weekly

Course Objectives

1. Communicate anatomical and physiologic concepts using the correct terminology.

2. Identify the structural levels of organization from cellular to organ system level for the body
systems covered in this course.

3. Explain the physiologic mechanisms and functions of the body systems studied in this
course.

4. Explain the principle of homeostasis and feedback mechanisms as they relate to the body
systems covered in this course.

5. Research, analyze, and apply the knowledge of anatomy and physiology to clinical cases and
support the reasonableness of that analysis.

6. Apply the principles of the scientific method to a laboratory experiment, determine the
reasonableness of the results, and present the findings in a research report.
