Anatomy and Physiology/Microbiology - Courses
The BI 231, 232 and 233
courses provide basic information needed by pre-health professionals and are both required and accepted by many of Lane's Family and Health Careers programs. These credits are generally transferable to other academic institutions. Each class includes a study of anatomical models, histological slides, selected dissections and appropriate multimedia technologies.
BI 231 - Human Anatomy and Physiology 1
Prerequisite: Grade of 'C-' or better in BI 112 and CH 112. BI 231 is the first course in a sequence and provides a foundation for the subsequent courses. This first course includes an introduction to human body organization, tissues and the integumentary, skeletal, articular and muscular body systems. The fundamentals of the nervous system and a study of the autonomic nervous system are also included.
BI 232 - Human Anatomy and Physiology 2
Prerequisite: Grade of 'C-' or better in BI 231 The second course in the sequence includes anatomy and physiology of central and peripheral nervous systems, special senses, hematology, cardiovascular, lymphatic and immune systems. Common laboratory/clinical tests associated with these topics are presented. See sequence description above.
BI 233 - Human Anatomy and Physiology 3
Prerequisite: Grade of 'C-' or better in BI 232 The third course in the sequence includes anatomy and physiology of the respiratory, digestive, urinary, endocrine, and reproductive systems. Also included are fundamental genetic concepts and their relationship to heredity. Common laboratory/clinical tests associated with the topics above are presented. See sequence description above.
BI 234 - Introductory Microbiology
Prerequisite: Grade of 'C-' or better in BI 233 or instructor consent A medically oriented survey of bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms, body defenses, immunology, sterilization and disinfection, and a discussion of representative infectious diseases. Laboratory manipulations and observations of microbes enhance student learning.
