The course explores foundational principles in human anatomy and physiology. The focus of the course is to build on the biology knowledge students acquire in grade 12 and bridge that knowledge to the level of post-secondary human anatomy and physiology. The course investigates all body systems and equips students with foundational knowledge equivalent to what all health practitioners learn at a post-secondary level. Although there is no formal lab built into this course, students have the opportunity to interact with some lab-based activities and anatomy models. The course is widely accepted as a biology pre-requisite by various programs in the school of health.
$380.36 - $406.31 See individual course offerings below for actual costs.
This course is no longer accepted as a prerequisite for Nursing. Course materials will be listed on the BCIT Bookstore Website www.bcit.ca/bookstore/ .

Students outside the Greater Vancouver Region must find a proctor at an accredited post-secondary institution or Test Centre. Follow up instructions will be e-mailed after registering.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
Describe the chemical, cellular, histologic and macroscopic levels of human body organization
Recognize the structure and function of cells and tissues in the human body
Demonstrate fluency with descriptive anatomical and physiological terms
Discuss the structure, function and biological processes associated with the following body systems:
Apply foundational anatomy and physiology principles to formulate how basic disease processes can develop
Effective as of Fall 2018
