Description

Continuation of examination of the structure and function of the human body utilizing a systems approach with an emphasis on anatomical and physiological relationships between nervous, endocrine and cardiovascular systems. Concurrent labs include hands-on dissections of a variety of tissues, organs, fetal pigs and/or cats. For students in pre-nursing and other pre-professional health programs. This course includes animal dissection and cadaver observation.

Learning outcomes
