Anatomy & Physiology

Department: Science
Teachers: Heath Utley
Open to: Seniors
Length: 2 Semesters

Instruction in the Anatomy & Physiology is based primarily on the “systems” approach. This approach places emphasis upon an entire organ system of the body, and it proposes to integrate the learning of both the anatomy and physiology of that system. This method of presentation, while it may provide a greater challenge to the instructor, will retain the attention of the student longer, and provide a more concomitant learning atmosphere. There will be tremendous emphasis placed upon visual aid and representation throughout all aspects of the course. Also, through a combination of hands-on laboratory exercises, class discussion, current events, and projects relating to the human body and medicine, they will be challenged to look at the function and dysfunction of the human body from a myriad of sources. Students will gain a greater appreciation of the complexity and beauty of the human body.
