Anatomy and Physiology
Welcome to Anatomy and Physiology!
Anatomy is the study of the structures of the body. Physiology is the study of how those structures function. This course focuses mostly on the human body but it does involve some animal dissections. This is a college-preperatory course that is suggested to students who desire to go into the medical field.
The course is taught as a full year, but you may take just the first semester if you'd like. In other words, Anatomy I is taught in the fall semester each year. Anatomy II is taught in the spring semester each year. You may take just Anatomy I if you'd like, but you may not take Anatomy II without taking Anatomy I.
Anatomy I covers the following topics:
The Basics and the Chemistry of Anatomy
Cells and the Tissues of the Body
The Skeletal System
The Muscular System
The Nervous System (and the special senses)
Anatomy II covers the following topics
The Endocrine System
The Cardiovascular System
The Lymphatic System
The Digestive System
The Respiratory System
The Urinary System
