To provide a common anatomical and physiological language for communication within the health profession. 2.
To provide basic information about the microscopic and submicroscopic structure of organs and tissues of the human body. 3.
To develop knowledge of the topographic anatomy of the human body by study of the relationships of the organ systems and their surface projections 4.
To understand key physiologic principles which pertain to specific organ function. C. Resources: 1.
Lectures: All lectures will be presented in Stafford 101 from 9:00 am
