Human Physiology for Health Professionals

  • Course ID: BIOL 324
  • Subject: Biological Sciences

This course covers function aspects of the human body from the cellular to the organ-system level. Students will learn the major physiology of body systems, including mechanisms and regulation of normal body functions and pathophysiological aspects of disease. Students will gain skills in measuring physiological outputs and will analyze these data to give meaningful interpretations of the physiological status of the body. Finally, students will gain an appreciation of the intricacy and detail of the human body, the importance of precision and accuracy in experimental work, and the value of collaborative learning.

Note For successful completion of this course, it is recommended that students are familiar with BIOL 125: Biology I, BIOL 126: Biology II or their equivalents.

Courses Include

  • illustration of a person talking. Lectures
  • illustration of a beaker. Labs
Labs fall into three categories: at-home labs, laboratory kits and virtual labs. At-home labs use commonly found household items or things that can easily be purchased and come with a set of instructions on how to complete the lab. Laboratory kits are very similar to at home-labs – items and directions required to complete the lab are sent directly to you via the purchase of a lab kit. Virtual labs use in-house designed simulations which walk you through any experiment and will ask you lab-related questions. All labs may require a video of you performing the lab and/or a completed lab report.
