Grades 11, 12
Unlocking the mysteries of the human body continues to be a monumental challenge. Every day there are new diseases to cure, technological advancements to implement, and ethical decisions to make. What will we face in the future? The content material will particularly benefit students planning careers in the medical or health science areas. The introductory topics of anatomical terminology and body tissues provide the foundation for the study of the body systems. Anatomy (structure) as related to physiology (function) and diseases of the body systems are emphasized through lectures, group and project work, dissections, and laboratory activities.
Prerequisites: Biology and Chemistry. Concurrent enrollment in AP Biology is recommended.
