BCIT

BHSC 1200 - Human Anatomy and Physiology

Basic Health Sciences Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. All PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.

Course Details

This course thoroughly examines topics related to the study of the human body. The course will start with an introduction to the organization of the human body, covering the basics of cytology, histology, and fundamental organic chemistry. It will then follow a systems approach to study the relationship between structure and function of the human body. Every body system will be covered, including the nervous, endocrine, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary, reproductive and integumentary systems. The importance of interactions between organ systems to maintain homeostasis will be emphasized throughout the course. This is a blended learning course, using a combination of online and classroom instruction. While this course will focus on an understanding of normal anatomy and physiology, physiological factors in disease processes will be introduced to apply the learned concepts and to prepare students for future studies in the field of Health Sciences.

Prerequisite(s)

Chemistry 11 is recommended.
