Course Descriptions

Anatomy-Physiology (AP)


AP 100  Survey of Human Anatomy and Physiology  (5)
Covers the basics of human anatomy and physiology including anatomical terminology, basic biochemistry, cells and tissues, and the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic/immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems. Introduces common human disease processes. Prepares non-science majors and allied-health profession students to take advanced anatomy and physiology courses. PREREQUISITE: Eligible for ENGL& 101. Satisfies a natural science requirement for AA degree.
AP 102  Bringing Anatomy and Physiology to Life  (5)
Intended for students interested in taking human anatomy and physiology without going into the depth of the other Green River anatomy/physiology course. Intended for non-science majors and for students not pursuing an allied health career. Develops an understanding of the structure and function of some of the key systems in the human body. Non-lab science course. PREREQUISITE: Eligible for ENGL& 101 or MATH 072. Satisfies a natural science requirement for AA degree.

AP 103  Essentials of Human Anatomy and Physiology 1  (5)
Introductory course in human anatomy and physiology. First of a two-quarter sequence including the study of structure and function of cells, tissues, and the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems. Introduces common human disease processes. Laboratory component includes anatomical studies using microscopy and dissection and the study of physiological concepts via experimentation. AP 100 strongly recommended. PREREQUISITE: Eligible for ENGL& 101. Satisfies a lab or natural science requirement for AA degree.
AP 104  Essentials of Human Anatomy and Physiology 2  (5)
Introductory course in human anatomy and physiology. Second of a two-quarter sequence including the study of the endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic/immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems. Introduces common human disease processes. Laboratory component includes anatomical studies using microscopy and dissection and the study of physiological concepts via experimentation. PREREQUISITE: AP 103 and eligible for ENGL& 101. Satisfies a lab or natural science or requirement for AA degree.

AP 210  Cadaver Anatomy  (1)
Comprehensive review of human cadaver anatomy for health professionals and students of the health professions. Covers major muscles, skin, bones and joints, internal organs, blood vessels, the brain, spinal cord and major nerves. Uses dissected cadavers to study anatomical variations, pathologies, and anatomical change due to the aging process. PREREQUISITE: Concurrent enrollment in AP 104 or BIOL& 242 and eligible for ENGL& 101; or instructor's permission. Satisfies a natural science requirement for AA degree.
