Human Anatomy and Physiology

This collection contains the California Open Educational Resources Council (CA OER) peer-reviewed textbook for three human anatomy courses. The e-textbook has been identified in the top 50 college courses for inclusion in the California Open Online Library for Education (COOLforEd).

These courses are Human Anatomy with Lab (BIO 110B), Human Physiology with Lab (BIO 120B), and Human Anatomy and Physiology (BIO 115SB)

C-ID Number: BIOL 110 B

Human Anatomy with Lab (BIO 110 B)

General Course Description:

Structural organization of the human body: gross and microscopic structure of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, sensory, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems, from cellular to organ system levels of organization. This course is primarily intended for nursing, allied health, kinesiology, and other health-related majors.

Minimum Units: 4.0 Lecture and Lab

C-ID Number: BIOL 120 B

Human Physiology with Lab (BIO 120B)

General Course Description:

Study of the physiological principles, function, integration and homeostasis of the human body at the cellular, tissue, organ, organ system and organism level: integumentary system, bone, skeletal, smooth and cardiac muscles, nervous system, sensory organs, cardiovascular system, lymphatic and immune systems, respiratory system, urinary system, digestive system, endocrine system, and reproductive system. This course is primarily intended for Nursing, Allied Health, Kinesiology, and other health-related majors.

Minimum Units: 4.0 Lecture and Lab

C-ID Number: BIOL 115 S B

Human Anatomy and Physiology (BIO 115 S B)

General Course Description:

Structure, function, integration and homeostasis of the human body at the cellular, tissue, organ, organ system and organism level, including the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, sensory, cardiovascular, lymphatic, immune, respiratory, urinary, digestive, endocrine, and reproductive systems. This course is intended primarily for allied health majors.

Minimum Units: 4.0 Lecture, 4.0 Lab

Learning Outcomes

BIOL 110 B

At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to: 

  • Describe key structural features of different human cell and major tissue types.
  • Identify and describe the anatomy of the systems of the human body
  • Relate structure and function at the cellular through system levels of organization of human body systems
  • Describe structural or anatomical changes that occur in disease, injury or aging of the human body systems.

BIOL 120 B

At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:

  • Describe and distinguish various roles of major classes of biomolecules in living cells.
  • Describe key functional features of different types of human cells and how they communicate.
  • Identify key functions of major organ systems and the physiological mechanisms underlying their operation.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of how organ systems of the body are integrated and regulated.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of how homeostasis is maintained in the body.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of metabolic and physiological disorders of the major organ systems.
  • Analyze experimental data to demonstrate physiological principles.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the scientific method, experimental design, and the philosophy of science. Apply the scientific method and philosophy of science by designing components of and carrying out physiological experiments.

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the scientific method, experimental design, and the philosophy of science. Apply the scientific method and philosophy of science by designing components of and carrying out physiological experiments.

Assessment

  • Examinations with objective and written components.
  • Laboratory practical examinations for anatomy laboratory content are appropriate.
  • Laboratory reports for physiology laboratory content are appropriate.
  • Case studies and clinical applications may be included.
