ZOO 2020 - Human Anatomy & Physiology II


This course is the second semester of a two-semester introduction to the structure and function of the human body, this course will cover the endocrine, circulatory, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, renal, and reproductive systems.

Credits: 4

Instructional Method Lecture and Lab

General Education Requirement: Life Science
Comments: Students must complete both ZOO 2010 & ZOO 2020 for course equivalency at UW. Otherwise, course does not meet UW’s Human Culture requirement unless transferred as part of an Associate degree.

Prerequisites:
ZOO 2010 - Human Anatomy & Physiology I or instructor permission

Minimum Student Competencies
Upon completion of ZOO 2020 Human Anatomy and Physiology II, the student will

  1. Discuss in detail the structure, function, mechanism of action, and regulation of the endocrine, circulatory, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, renal, and reproductive systems.
  2. Identify the macroscopic and microscopic structures of the endocrine, circulatory, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, renal, and reproductive systems and explain the function of each from observation and experimentation.
  3. Apply the fundamental vocabulary of the discipline and anatomical terms properly.
  4. Explain homeostasis and discuss it in relationship to each of the organ systems and the organism as a whole.
  5. Describe the interrelationships of the organ systems.


Program Outcomes
