This course introduces students to the principles of human anatomy and physiology.
It covers 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.
At the end of the semester you are expected to be able to:
* use and understand basic anatomical and physiologic terminology
* identify anatomical structures using illustrations, position in the body, and morphology
* explain basic biochemical processes occurring at the cellular level
* describe the relationship between anatomical structure and function in the cell, in various
organs, and within systems
* explain the concept of homeostasis and the mechanisms organ systems use to maintain homeostasis
* interpret diagrams and graphically represented material
* use a variety of learning techniques and demonstrate good study skills
* demonstrate critical thinking by applying knowledge to clinical situations
Attendance is mandatory at all lectures.
Cell phones must be turned off during lecture, lecture may not be videotaped.
Before coming to lecture, you are expected to know which topics will be covered.
Quizzes cannot be made up. The lowest quiz will be dropped.
You are responsible for all the material presented in class, regardless of absence.
You will be tested on the material covered in lecture. The text is intended to help you
understand the lecture material more thoroughly. You will NOT be tested on material
in the text that we have not covered in the lecture unless I specifically assign it
Make-up tests for lecture will be given only if you provide a medical excuse.
Make-up tests must be taken before the next scheduled test.
Final exams are cumulative and will not be given prior to the scheduled examination.
If you have a disability and need accommodations, please come to see me during the first
week of class, so that I can be helpful from the very beginning.
Any student involved in cheating or plagiarism will be reported to the Dean of Students
and may be suspended or expelled from CCRI.
In addition, you are responsible for following the policies set forth in the Student Handbook
and the college catalog http://www.ccri.edu/catalog/
