Highlights

  • Includes over 73 video lectures and documents
  • You will develop a vocabulary of appropriate terminology to effectively communicate information related to the anatomy and physiology of the following body systems: integumentary, skeletal, nervous, and muscular.
  • To be able to understand, identify, and describe the basic anatomical structures associated with cells and tissue, integumentary, muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems.
  • Learn to describe how all parts of the human body contribute to the maintenance of homeostasis.

 

Learn to understand the anatomy of your body, how to give special care to each of its systems to aid in carrying out its functionalities with ease to keep you in a state of equilibrium.

This course consists of more than 75 video lectures and documents from which you will learn to describe how all parts of the human body contribute to the maintenance of homoeostasis. You may be an Anatomy and Physiology faculty looking to adopt low-cost, media-rich supplemental materials, or a Practitioner in health and related fields (e.g. public health, health literacy, or nursing). The course is also suited to anyone with an interest in the human body and its systems.
