This Chamberlain course is the third in a four-course sequence in which human anatomy and physiology are studied using a body systems approach. Coursework emphasizes interrelationships between form and function at the gross and microscopic levels of organization. Topics include the cardiovascular, immune and respiratory systems. The course describes the human body systems, explaining in general terms what the system does and how it interacts with other systems. These systems include the heart, blood and lymphatic and respiratory systems.
Understanding anatomical and physiological concepts as they apply in the healthcare delivery setting as opposed to the scientific investigational realm is stressed. Emphasis is placed on physiological parameters and meanings as opposed to simply anatomical descriptions.
Laboratory exercises will complement the course material to combine, integrate and relate the basic facts and concepts acquired in the lectures. These activities are designed to promote critical thinking and application skills. Wherever possible, we will emphasize the use of life experiences, plausible clinical situations and common diagnostic problems, thus drawing upon the students' analytical and organizational powers.
