BIOS 1200 - Human Structure and Function for Allied Health
This course is designed to introduce allied health students to body structures that contribute to an understanding of human body processes. Students begin by learning about cells, tissues, and homeostasis. Those topics support student learning of the normal function and interrelationship of systems. The systems covered include integumentary, muscular, skeletal, nervous, endocrine, sensory, circulatory, immune, respiratory, urinary, digestive, and reproductive. Instruction is given concerning changes across life spans and associated pathophysiology of diseases.
