Starting with the relationship between anatomy and physiology, students will then learn about cell structure and their processes. Learners will also discover the functions and purposes of the skeletal, muscular, nervous, and cardiovascular systems, as well as diseases that affect those systems. Students will learn about the structure, function, and interrelation between the lymphatic, immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and the endocrine systems. The reproductive system is also discussed along with hereditary traits and genetics. Finally, students will explore the importance of accurate patient documentation as well as technology used in the industry.

When enrolling in the full year option of this course, it will be delivered in two semesters. Transcripts will reflect each semester separately.
