Neurobiology and Anatomy 205/206: Introduction to Human Anatomy

3 credit hours / 1-2 credit hour lab options

 

Description: An introductory human anatomy course that uses a combined regional and systemic approach to examine the relationships and organization of the major structures within the head/neck, thorax, abdomen, pelvis and back/limbs regions of the body. Students will learn the fundamentals of human anatomy relevant for clinical application.

 

The emphasis of the course is on gross anatomy, with relevant micro-anatomy taught as needed. A systems approach is used to prepare students to understand relationships among structures that contribute to the functioning of organ systems.

Pharmacology 260: Pharmacology

3 credit hours

 

Description: PCOL 260 is an upper-level undergraduate course designed for anyone with an interest in drugs and medicine. It is most often taken by students majoring in nursing, dental hygiene, and pre-medical/-dental fields, and is also of interest to students in forensics, athletic training, and exercise physiology as well as conscious health care consumers.

 

Pharmacology 260 examines the science behind the uses of drugs, covering a variety of common prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs, supplements and herbal medicines, and drugs of abuse. The clinical use, mechanism of action, and important side effects of each class of drugs are explored within the context of the body's organ systems.

 

Course Options:
May 14 - August 3, 2018 | CRN: 50461

 

Pre-requisite: Students should have taken 2 semesters of undergraduate biology or the anatomy/physiology course taken by Nursing and other health professions.
