PHSL 2061: Introduction to Human Physiology

3 Credits

The human body consists of multiple organ systems that not only work independently but rely on each other to form a functioning human body. In this introductory human physiology course, you will learn about each major organ systems and its basic physiological function. While studying each system we will start with the normal physiology and transition to predicting how these systems break down under diseased conditions. This active learning class will be broken up in to mini-lectures and small group discussion. Each mini lecture will include an introduction to the current system and will be followed by a group discussion where you will be asked to predict, illustrate, articulate, and summarize the normal physiology and the changes that occur in the face of outside stressors. You will see that some physiological changes occur rapidly, and some over many years. Moreover, some changes are physiological while others pathological. This introductory course is designed to provide you with a foundation in human physiology while simultaneously inspire you to appreciate the complexities and beauty in each of our bodies.
