Course Description

A comprehensive study of all eleven body systems in the time-frame of a one-semester course. Lecture emphasizes how anatomy, chemistry, and cell biology permit the specific functioning of organs and systems, while lab exercises reinforce the lecture materials. BIO-134 does not substitute for the BIO-233/BIO-234 sequence required by HFC's Nursing, Respiratory Therapist, Surgical Technologist, Radiographer, and Physical Therapy Assistant programs. BIO-134 may serve as refresher for the 233/234 sequence if taken within 5 years of original courses and permission is granted from the School of Health and Human Services (HHS). Four hours of lecture and two hours of lab per week. Please note: BIO-134 is a 5 credit, content-heavy course, which requires a substantial time commitment and focused study beyond the conventional expectations in a standard 100 level science course.
