Course Description: Anatomy & Physiology I provides students with a comprehensive study of the human body through an explanation of the structure and function of its parts. Starting with a basic of cellular composition, each body system is examined with emphasis on both normal and pathological processes. The body systems covered in A&P I include: the skeletal system, muscular system, circulatory system, nervous system and immune system.

Learning Goals: Students will learn the structure and function of specific body systems.
