For the two semesters, these topics include the organization of the human body; muscle and bone; the nervous system (including the special senses); the cardiovascular system; respiration; digestion; metabolism, excretion, fluid; electrolyte and acid-base balance; the endocrine system; reproduction and genetics. The subject matter will be related to clinical and health-related issues.The laboratory is a hands-on experience designed to complement the lectures.
