The objective of the course, as a continuation of Anatomy and Physiology I, is to explore the physiological functions and structures of the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, urinary, respiratory, and lymphatic systems. By the end of the course, students will learn the basic anatomical structures of these systems and the physiological processes that these structures govern. Students will also learn about pathological conditions that impact the optimal functioning of each system.

Learning Outcomes:

  • identify the components and function of blood
  • describe the structure and function of the cardiovascular system
  • describe the structure and function of the lymphatic and immune systems
  • describe the structure and function of the respiratory system
  • describe the structure and function of the digestive system
  • describe the digestion and metabolism of nutrients
  • describe the structure and function of the urinary system
  • describe the structure and function of the endocrine system
  • explain how major hormones are regulated

General Course Topics:

  • Blood and the cardiovascular system the heart and the cardiovascular system vessels and circulation in the cardiovascular system the lymphatic system immunity and disease the respiratory system and process the gastrointestinal system and digestion accessory organs of the gastrointestinal system nutrition and metabolism in the human body anatomy and physiology of the urinary system electrolyte, water and pH balance in the body sexual reproduction and the reproductive system human development, growth and aging
