LEARNER OUTCOMES: By the end of this course each student should be able to: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
Discuss the composition of the human body at the atomic, molecular, cellular, tissue, and organ levels of organization. Identify various structures of cells, tissues, and organs. Discuss the physiology and anatomy of the human integumentary, skeletal, muscular, & digestive systems. Discuss human disease including the etiology, physiological effects, and methods of control for the integumentay, muscular, skeletal, and digestive systems. Demonstrate proper safety procedures associated with the laboratory, and with the dissection and identification of prepared specimens.
ASSESSMENT: Learner Outcomes are evaluated in both lecture and laboratory settings. Evaluation will be based on testing, classroom or internet participation, evidence of preparation, attendance, or any combination of the above.
