Corequisites: There are no corequisites for this course.
Catalog Description: An intensive study of human anatomy with emphasis on normal physiology and disease states that result when normal homeostatic mechanisms are compromised. Topics covered include basic cellular structure and function, tissue components of the body, cellular metabolism, integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems and special senses. Laboratory exercises are intended to enhance topics covered in lecture. Models, dissection material, and other media are used to explore the structure of the cell, tissues, integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems.
Required Materials: Books:
  • Marieb. Anatomy & Physiology, 9th ed., Benjamin Cummings, 2013. ISBN: 9780321852021
Supplemental Materials:
Special Requirements: None
Program Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

1.  Demonstrate an understanding of metabolic processes in the human 
body at the cellular level.
2.  Explain concepts concerning the organization of the human body.
3.  Understand physiological homeostasis as it relates to health and 
disease.
4.  Describe the basic tissues of the body and their location and 
explain thier functions.
5.  Demonstrate an understanding of human genetics and genetically 
transmitted diseases.
6.  Explain the normal structure, function, and major pathological 
conditions of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous 
systems.
7.  Describe the structures that comprise the special sensory organs 
and explain their normal functioning and major pathological 
conditions.
8.  Define and properly use terminology appropriate to the study of 
human anatomy.
9.  Identify cell and tissue structures using microscopy and other 
media.
10. Identify the stages of the cell cycle using microscopy and other 
media.
11.  Identify structures of the integumentary system using microscopy 
and other media.
12. Identify bones and landmarks of the axial and appendicular 
skeleton using human skeletal materials, models and other media.
13.  Identify major muscles of the human body including origins, 
insertion and actions from models, dissected specimens and other 
media.
14.  Identify the major structures of the central and peripheral 
nervous systme using models, dissected specimens and other material.
Course Learning Outcomes:
See expanded syllabus developed by the instructor for each section 
being taught.
Methods of Evaluation: Evaluation of student progress towards achieving the stated learning outcomes and performance objectives is the responsibility of the instructor, within the policies of the college and the department. Detailed explanations are included in the expanded Syllabus developed by the instructor for each section being taught. In lab exercises, at least 50% of the student evaluation will be based on practical quizzes and/or examinations.
Flexibility: It is the intention of the instructor to accomplish the objectives specified in the course syllabus. However, circumstances may arise which prohibit the fulfilling of this endeavor. Therefore, this syllabus is subject to change. When possible, students will be notified of any change in advance of its occurrence.
Student Email Accounts Pensacola State College provides an institutional email account to all credit students. Pirate Mail is the official method of communication, and students must use Pirate Mail when communicating with the College. In cases where companion software is used for a particular class, emails may be exchanged between instructor and student using the companion software.
Note: For students with a disability that falls under the Americans with Disability Act or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, it is the responsibility of the student to notify Student Resource Center for ADA Services to discuss any special needs or equipment necessary to accomplish the requirements for this course. Upon completion of registration with the Student Resource Center for ADA Services office, specific arrangements can be discussed with the instructor.
