The first quarter of a two-quarter study of the structure and function of the human body. Students should not take BIOL 355 unless they intend to take BIOL 356. Three hours lecture and four hours laboratory per week. A student cannot use BIOL 355/356 and BIOL 455 in the major. A student cannot receive credit for both BIOL 355 and BIOL 305.

Prerequisites: BIOL 183.

Credits: (5)

Learner Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

NOTE: This course is one of a two quarter sequence. Each course covers a different set of human organ systems, with similar learner outcomes.

  • Identify and analyze detailed anatomical structures associated with the major human organ systems (or a suitable mammalian surrogate such as cats, etc. will be used to dissect /identify these structures.
  • Describe the detailed functioning (physiology) of all major organ system of the body.
  • Integrate the study of anatomy and physiology to gain a fuller understanding of human form and function.
  • Demonstrate the dissection and laboratory skills necessary for the examination and study of the major human organ systems.
  • Relate physical structure to biological function across all levels of organization (from cellular to organismal levels).
