Pre-Med: Intro to Human Anatomy & Physiology through Direct Examination, Simulation, and Dissection
This course is all about systemic human biology, or how the heart, lungs, and musculoskeletal and nervous systems work together to help you function. We will be examining the way that people are put together and how the systems of the body work together through direct examination, similar to what you would see at a doctor’s office, and you’ll learn the basics of how to complete a physical exam. You will also learn through simulations using practice dummies or high level computers. Lastly, hands-on experience will teach you about the way that the body is assembled through dissection, where you’ll learn how the anatomy of the body’s major organs relates to their function in the body.
