Student Learning Outcomes:
  1. Define and describe key concepts in anatomy and physiology such as anatomy, physiology, pathology, homeostasis, negative feedback, positive feedback, disease, predisposing factors, signs, symptoms, pain, and inflammation.
  2. Describe the structure and function of the integumentary system including the histology of the skin, glands, hair, and nails, as well as the skin’s response to injury, burns, diagnostic tests, and different forms of skin cancer.
  3. Demonstrate knowledge of the skeletal system by using medical terminology, distinguishing between axial and appendicular skeletons, describing bone tissue, anatomy of long bones.
  4. Describe the components of blood, plasma constituents, formed elements, mechanisms for controlling bleeding, blood clotting pathways, ABO and Rh blood types, blood transfusion compatibility, functions of blood, common diagnostic blood tests, and disorders of the cardiovascular system related to blood.
