Course Description

A continuation of HLTH 211 that examines the structure, function, and pathology of the various body systems and their roles, relevance, and applications in health and illness. The course employs virtual interactive cadaver dissection technology. The following topics are covered: the digestive system, the urinary system, the skin, the musculoskeletal system, and the reproductive systems.

 

Prerequisites

None

 

Rationale

The purpose of this course is to provide medical associates with increased knowledge of God’s amazing creation—the human body. Being familiar with the major structures and the physiological operation of these structures will help these individuals in their profession tremendously. It will vastly improve their ability to communicate with their co-workers trained in a variety of medical professions.

Measurable Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  1. List the component structures of the digestive system and urinary system.
  2. List the component structures of the integumentary system.
  3. List the component structures of the musculoskeletal system.
  4. List the component structures of the reproductive systems.
  5. Describe the function of the digestive and urinary systems.
  6. Describe the function of the integumentary system.
  7. Describe the function of the musculoskeletal system.
  8. Describe the function of the reproductive systems.
  9. Analyze Christian worldview vs. secular worldviews on the topic of creation vs. evolution of human life.
