  • Prerequisites: BIOL 223 with a grade of C or better

Course Outline

I: Catalog Course Description

Offers a detailed study of the anatomy and physiology of the circulatory, immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary, endocrine and reproductive systems. Primarily for physical education, pre‐nursing and other pre‐health majors. NOTE: For programs that require BIOL 223 and 224, both courses must be completed at the same institution if taken outside Nevada. May be repeated a maximum of two times within the last five years.

II. Course Objectives and Linkage to General Education Program

The information in the parentheses after a course objective refers to the specific general education (GE) learning outcome that the objective meets. Objectives without this information are not linked to WNC’s general education program.

Upon successful completion of BIOL 223, Human Anatomy and Physiology I, (defined as a 75% course score or better) learners will be able to:

  • Describe the anatomy and physiology of the circulatory, immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary, endocrine and reproductive systems (GE #1);
  • Illustrate and explain the function of cell and tissue types in the human body (GE #1);
  • Illustrate and explain the function of biomolecules at the sub-cellular and cellular level in the human body (GE #1);
  • Draw conclusions from experimentally derived data in the laboratory (GE #1, #4).

III. Topics

All students will have in-depth (second semester of a lab-based two-semester sequence) knowledge of the human circulatory, immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary, endocrine and reproductive systems and their applications to human health and some fundamental pathology to each organ system, e.g., this may include lecture topics on elementary EKG interpretation and arterial blood gas interpretation.
