Introduction to Anatomy and Physiology

Objectives

Though you may approach a course in anatomy and physiology strictly focused on your field of study, the knowledge that you gain in this course will serve you well in many aspects of your life. An understanding of anatomy and physiology is not only fundamental to any health profession, but it can also benefit your own health.

Familiarity with the human body can help you make healthful choices and prompt you to take appropriate action when signs of illness arise. Your knowledge in this field will help you understand news about nutrition, medications, medical devices, and procedures; as well as, help you understand genetic or infectious diseases. At some point, everyone will have a problem with some aspect of his or her body, so your knowledge will help you to be a better parent, spouse, partner, friend, colleague, or caregiver.
