Course Details

Course Code: BIOL251 Course ID: 4694 Credit Hours: 4 Level: Undergraduate

This is the second of a two-course sequence in human anatomy & physiology. This intensive course is intended to prepare students for careers in the health sciences (sports medicine, physical therapy, EMS, nursing, physician assistant, etc.). Lessons and laboratory exercises focus on homeostasis, metabolism, acid-base balance, growth and development, and the endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, urinary, digestive, and reproductive systems. Students are also required to successfully complete a cumulative assessment of anatomy & physiology objectives from both BIOL250 and BIOL251. This course includes a hands-on laboratory component, and students are required to perform dissection of preserved animal specimens. Some of the laboratory activities require the use of glass or sharp laboratory instruments; therefore, students must have a safe work area available to perform laboratory activities. Students must also have room temperature storage available in order to maintain laboratory materials and specimens through both BIOL250 and BIOL251. Refrigerated storage is not required. In addition, students must be able to document their laboratory work using still pictures and/or video. Lab material for this course will only be provided once. If you need replacement lab equipment for any reason or need to retake the course later, you will need to purchase your own lab refills. NOTE: Students may take either BIOL201 or BIOL250/BIOL251 for credit, but not both versions of anatomy & physiology. (Prerequisite: BIOL250)
