Anatomy focuses on the structure, while physiology centers on function.
Gaining a basic understanding of these two sciences will provide you with a much more intimate understanding of not only our own bodies, but also the make up of many other plants and animals in the world around us.
However, to offer a real comprehensive study, this course will focus on the human "organism", covering the major systems as they work together to keep our bodies functioning properly.
The beauty of this class is that the course instructor provides a fantastic foundation for any number of potential scenarios.
Situations such as high school and college students who need to improve their grades or grasp of Anatomy and Physiology, or even adults and professionals considering making a career change into the medical or biological sectors.
In all honesty, this course is ideal for anyone out there who wants to gain a deeper understanding of how their bodies work, and of course, reasons why our bodies sometimes DON'T work.
Regardless of why you want to learn more about anatomy and physiology, you're all out of excuses for procrastination. Enrollment is always open and the instructor is frequently online to respond to any of your questions or concerns.
So head on it - stat!
If you're on the lookout for an extensive, in-depth study of the inner parts and functions of the human body, then this is the course for you!
Whether you're a high school or college student hoping to really ace your finals or an adult long out of school determined to prove that you can teach an old dog new tricks, you won't be disappointed.
It is important to note that the material covered in these lessons will require at least an eighth or ninth grade reading and comprehension level. This is due in part to the fact that successful course completion will demand a pretty hefty share of both reading and writing.
Anatomy & Physiology 101 is broken down into a total of 16 lessons and is entirely "self-contained". That means that everything you'll need in order to succeed is already waiting for you as soon as you enroll - right down to 72 web-links you'll likely bookmark before the class is complete.
Each of the 16 lessons will serve to satisfy one of four primary goals:
1. It will teach you to identify the major systems of the body as well as understand the major roles of each.
2. And you'll be able to both identify and explain major cells, tissues and organs.
Although this class is a bit more informal than a traditional classroom setting, don’t make the mistake of thinking the grading will be. There's a LOT
of material to cover and, more importantly, retain. To help keep you on top, the instructor has included not only simple true and false or multiple choice questions, but also essays and other written assignments. And, just like any serious Anatomy & Physiology class, there will be a thorough 350 point final exam.
Of course, in the end, all that hard work will have paid off. You'll have completed a rigorous class and made leaps and bounds in your understanding of the form and function of the human body that will give you a cutting edge in the medical and biological scenes.
Better yet, you can get started right now!
