Overview

This course offers a fast, fun and enjoyable way to learn the basics of human anatomy and physiology. It provides a strong foundation for students interested in careers in kinesiology, anatomy and physiology, physical therapy and sports medicine.

An overview of basic body systems, including structure and function of major organ systems, bone and muscle groups, and interactions between organ systems. Each class will have a Spotlight on Medicine, looking at substances and medicines used to treat different ailments. A field trip to a local hospital provides access to people working medical careers. On the final day students will give ‘capstone’ presentations about a biology or medical topic of their choice. Students will be able to choose their topics, and work together during class time to prepare a presentation to share.
