Human Anatomy And Physiology –

hcs250

(3 credits)

This course builds on the student's previous foundation of basic anatomy and physiology. Terminology, structure, function, and integration of body systems are stressed. Students begin to develop critical thinking skills, so that signs, symptoms of disease, and health care interventions can be traced to their root cause.
This undergraduate-level course is 5 weeks. This course is available to take individually or as part of a degree or certificate program. To enroll, speak with an Enrollment Advisor.
