Applied Human Anatomy and Physiology II – HLTH 222

CG • Section 8WK • 11/08/2019 to 04/16/2020 • Modified 07/28/2020

Course Description

A continuation of HLTH 221 that examines the structure, function, and pathology of the various body systems and their roles, relevance, and applications in health and illness. The course will employ virtual interactive cadaver dissection technology. The following topics are covered: introduction to nutrition; the digestive system; the urinary system; the skin; resistance and immunity; the musculoskeletal system; introduction to genetics; and the reproductive systems. (Formerly HLTH 202)

Prerequisites

None

Rationale

The purpose of this course is to assist the student in gaining knowledge of God’s most amazing creation: the human body. Being familiar with the major structures and the physiological operation of these structures will help provide an educational foundation to work in a future health-related field. In addition, this course will improve the student’s ability to communicate with other individuals working in health-related fields.

Measurable Learning Outcomes

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

  1. List the component structures (anatomy) of each of the following: digestive and urinary systems, integumentary and immune systems, musculoskeletal system, and the reproductive system.
  2. Describe the function (physiology) of each of the following: digestive and urinary systems, integumentary and immune systems, musculoskeletal system, and the reproductive system.
  3. Enumerate several disease conditions (pathology) associated with each of the following: digestive and urinary systems, integumentary and immune systems, musculoskeletal system, and the reproductive system.
  4. Analyze the Christian worldview vs. secular worldviews on the topic of human stem cell use for the treatment of disease.

Course Assignment

Textbook readings and lecture presentations

Course Requirements Checklist

After reading the Course Syllabus and Student Expectations, the student will complete the related checklist found in Module/Week 1.

Discussion Board Forums (2)

Discussion Boards are collaborative learning experiences. Therefore, the student is required to create a thread in response to the provided prompt for each forum. Each thread must be at least 350 words and demonstrate course-related knowledge. The student must cite at least 1 scientific reference in his or her thread to support his or her position. In addition to the thread, the student is required to reply to 1 other classmate’s thread. Each reply must be at least 150 words.

Workbook Assignments (5)

The student will complete workbook assignments using the Anatomy & Physiology Revealed resources.

Disorder or Disease Presentation

The student will create a 15-slide presentation that focuses on a disorder or disease process from the musculoskeletal system. The presentation must include at least 3 peer-reviewed references in current APA format in addition to the course textbooks and the Bible.

Disorder or Disease Presentation Topic Submission

The student will submit a Word document with the presentation topic and a reference list of at least 3 peer-reviewed references in current APA format. A paragraph explaining why that topic was chosen and at least 2 areas of intended exploration must be included.

Exams (5)

Each exam will cover the Reading & Study material for the module/week in which it is assigned as well as the prior module/week, except Exams 3 and 4, which will only cover the material for the modules/weeks in which they are assigned. Each exam will be open-book/open-notes and contain 50–60 multiple-choice, true/false, and matching questions. Exams 1, 2, and 4 will each have 1 essay question. Each exam will have a 1-hour and 10-minute time limit.
