Course Description

This course is an integrated study of the relationship between the structure and function of the human body. The first half of this yearlong course is focused on the chemical foundations of life, the anatomy and physiology of the cell and the anatomy and physiology of the systems such as digestive, reproductive, muscular, nervous, excretory and so on. Some practical applications are presented, which have particular relevance to students preparing for the health care professions.
