Develop a vocabulary of appropriate terminology to effectively communicate information related to the anatomy and physiology of the following body systems: integumentary, skeletal, nervous, and muscular. Demonstrate an understanding of the chemical, cellular and tissue levels of organization of the human body.
Anatomy and Physiology I is a self-paced online course that offers a low-cost and comprehensive introduction to the human body and its systems. It combines professionally-produced video with the free, open-source, peer-reviewed textbook "Anatomy & Physiology" from OpenStax College.
The course is divided into eight sections and addresses everything students can expect to learn in a Human Anatomy and Physiology I course, whether taught at a high school, college or university.
