Anatomy and Physiological Course

  1. Aims of the Program
    • The Anatomy and Physiological course aim to provide the students the following skills:
      • Using anatomical and physiological terminology to all biological medicine studies
      • Understanding the details of the fundamental structures and functions of the body
  2. Intended Learning Results and the ways in which they are met and shown:
    • Knowledge and understanding
    • When the course is completed, students will be able to:
      • Demonstrate understanding of the basic aspects of anatomy and physiology
      • Strengthen their understanding by reading more in-depth literature
      • Having a thorough understanding of the anatomy of the body (organs and organ systems)
      • Study blood tests, comprehend the outcomes, and apply them to the different physiological systems
    • Students will have knowledge and understanding of the following:
      • The body’s anatomical structures and their topography
      • Every physiological system with its functions and pathology
      • Macro and micro scales of anatomy and physiology
    • Cognitive / Intellectual skills
    • After finishing the course, students will be able to:
      • Grasp all the fundamental concepts of anatomy and physiology
      • Comprehend and visualize the diagrams and the structures of the body in 3-dimensions
      • Understand the organization of living things, and the common characteristics humans have with animals, plants, and bacteria
      • Learn the field’s terminology and its correct pronunciation
    • Achievement of Learning Outcomes
    • The previously mentioned outcomes can be achieved using the following techniques:
    • Online Resources
      • For an enhanced visual learning, various colors are used in the illustrations
      • The anatomical structures are 3-D paintings instead of text
      • Understand the various feedback systems—including the effectors, control centers, and receptors—and their function in regulating physiological circumstances
      • Quizzes to provide students an opportunity to check their knowledge
    • Tutoring
      • Every student has access to a tutor whom they can approach and discuss their concerns
    • Course assignments
      • Before going on to the next phase of the course, the students have the chance to review each assignment
  3. Structures and requirements for the Program
    • There are no required studies for this module.
    • This module provides a comprehensive overview of the body systems and their functions in the human body.
    • There are 25 assignments in all, each consisting of 10 true/false or multiple-choice questions.
    • The grades for each assignment contribute towards the final mark.
    • The Final Exam is an online test that is timed. This is a quiz consisting of 60 questions taken from the assignments.
    • The final grade is calculated based on the work done in class, as well as the work done on the assignments.
