It's expected that students who pass this course will have acquired the knowledge of basic anatomy and physiology necessary to pass the pertinent sections of their respective certification and registration exams.  For students in other areas, it's expected that the information acquired in the course will allow them to pursue more advanced studies in human anatomy and/or physiology.  This is a unique class that contains the same depth of information that is presented at the first year university level.

Specific knowledge will be assimilated in the areas of: chemistry, cells, tissue histology, integument (skin), skeletal system, muscular system, nervous system, and sensory systems.

The intent is to learn all the information in the text on the mentioned areas, since this text is a standard for universities and colleges across the United States.  The most important and complex information and concepts will be the focus of the lectures.  Students will also be responsible for all assigned information in the text.
