Anatomy and Physiology 2

Course Number: SAH-005
Course Hours: 75
Assigned Course Preparation Hours: 19

Course Description

NTI requires most allied health students to complete two anatomy and physiology courses. Anatomy and Physiology 1 focuses on introductory concepts (medical terminology, scientific method, anatomical position, body planes, body cavities, body regions, and homeostatis), levels of organization (molecules, cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems), the senses, and the skeletal, muscular, nervous, and endocrine systems. Anatomy and Physiology 2 deals with the circulatory, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems as well as growth and development, genetics, nutrition, and metabolism.

Learning Objectives

  1. Use medical terms associated with human anatomy and physiology.
  2. Identify structures and explain functions associated with the human body.
  3. Describe the structures and functions of each body system.
  4. Explain the interrelationship among body systems.
  5. Describe the relationship between anatomy & physiology and a healthy lifestyle.
  6. Interpret diagrams and graphs associated with anatomy and physiology.

Educational Resources

This course is based on The Human Body in Health & Disease. It is delivered via the NTI Canvas LMS.
