Human Anatomy and Physiology I
An in-depth understanding of the human body is critical knowledge to anyone looking to work in healthcare. Starting at the cellular and molecular levels, you’ll concentrate on the organization of the human body as a symbiotic system. After gaining this baseline knowledge, you’ll dive deeper into specific systems. From terminology and identification to diseases and treatment, you’ll acquire key foundational knowledge about the human body and four of the 11 body systems: integumentary, skeletal, muscular and nervous.
This course is the first of two examining the structure, function and interdependence of human body systems. The remaining seven systems are covered in the second SNHUx course, Anatomy and Physiology II. Combined, the two courses cover all body systems.
You’ll also explore resources that walk you through the identification and treatment of different diseases for the four systems.
As a verified track learner, you will have access to interactive case studies and will be able to check your understanding as you progress through the course materials with short quizzes and a final exam.
