Students will demonstrate achievements by assessments on the departmental final exam and on testing developed by individual instructors.
This course develops critical thinking skills through instruction that emphasizes the understanding of the
scientific disciplines of human anatomy and physiology, as demonstrated in the following:
A formal research paper requiring the student to find, evaluate, and synthesize credible information on a given topic.
This research project allows the student to:
o Apply standard scientific methods and interpret laboratory observations and data o Make inferences justified by data and observations o Explain relevance of findings to anatomical principles, physiological principles, or expected results o Identify key assumptions of anatomy and physiology Course Goals The following list of course goals will be addressed in the course.
