This course is the second of two biology courses in the Pre-Health Sciences Program. It provides an introduction to the study of anatomy and physiology of humans and reviews the major themes of anatomy and physiology from Pre-Health Sciences Biology 1. This course subsequently studies a number of human systems in greater depth including the circulatory system, lymphatic system, immune system, respiratory system, digestive system, urinary system, and human growth and development. This course will describe physiological functions that contribute to health and/or disease.
Pre-Health Sciences Biology 1 and 2 combine to give the equivalent of NURS 1602 plus additional material.
