Check out the class syllabus! (CLICK HERE!!!)
Anatomy and Physiology has been a work in progress for thousands of years. In fact, the early beginnings of the discipline go back to prehistoric times. Mankind has always shown an interest in the structure (anatomy) as well as the function (physiology) of the human body. Typically, these topics are studied together due to their interconnected nature. The objective of this course is for students to encounter a broad range of A & P topics at a introductory level. In contrast to some other courses, this type of course is very specialized and can be difficult to master at times.
This course is ideal for students who desire to work in medical careers as physicians, nurses, physical therapists, speech pathologists, athletic trainers, nutritionists, and many other avenues. Taking this course in high school is a great way to get a head start for college level science curriculum. Some students may want to take the course because of personal interests or curiosity and that is fine too. The course has prerequisites of passing grades in Biology and Chemistry to be eligible for enrollment.
Anatomy and Physiology is perfect for students who desire academic challenges and enjoy hands on and self-directed learning.
