PHYL 141 : Human Anatomy and Physiology I

This course is a comprehensive introduction to the structure and function of the human body for students entering health or medically-related fields. This basic course includes a study of the body's embryology, gross anatomy, microanatomy, physiology, homeostatic relationships, and the use of anatomy and physiology terms and concepts to develop thinking, reading and writing skills, and problem-solving abilities. The integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems are studied.
