Anatomy and Physiology




Anatomy and Physiology embark on a captivating exploration of the human body – a marvel of intricate structures working in harmonious concert. This course delves into the fascinating world of how the body is built (anatomy) and how it functions (physiology), providing a comprehensive understanding of the systems that sustain life. Through a combination of engaging lectures, detailed dissections (optional, depending on the course format), and interactive laboratory activities, students will gain a profound appreciation for:

  • The Blueprint of Life: Exploring the hierarchical organization of the human body, from cells and tissues to organs, systems, and the entire organism.

  • The Locomotor System: Understanding the skeletal system's framework and the muscular system's intricate network, enabling movement and support.

  • The Control Center: Demystifying the nervous system, the body's communication network, and how it coordinates all functions.
