Anatomy and Physiology
“Little science takes you away from God but more of it takes you to him.” – Louis Pasteur
In Mrs. Newby’s introductory human anatomy and physiology course, students journey into the fascinating world of the human body to discover the intricate machinery that makes the body work. Students will relate the functional anatomy and physical geography of organs and organ systems to the physiological functions which they perform. Students will also explore the delicate web of interaction among body systems, the importance of maintaining homeostatic balance within this web, and the medical implications of disturbing this balance. The course will include numerous dissections, lab activities, and supplemental readings. Exams and assessments will derive from classroom instruction, which may reach beyond the material presented in the textbook.
