Welcome to the Discipline of Anatomy and Physiology/Microbiology
The Anatomy and Physiology Discipline Unit (APDU) offers approximately 50 courses each year (Bi 231-234). Students enrolled in our courses often enter the Family and Health Careers Programs here at Lane, transfer to other FHC programs at other colleges, or use these credits as transferable units to other institutions for application to a bachelor's degree. Therefore, these courses provide both a professional/ technical function as well as a transfer function. Our discipline strives to provide accessible courses to these students each year and assist them toward achieving their career goals in these fields. Our focus is on student learning, retention, and access to material and instructional aids in our courses. We have been very successful in obtaining educational grants, funding for instructional space, and increasing their access to resources in our Science Resource Room (SRC).
"The mission of the Science Division is to assist individuals to achieve their science education needs and goals."
The Anatomy and Physiology Discipline offers four main courses throughout the year. The sequence begins with BI 231, then offers BI 232 and BI 233 to finish the Anatomy and Physiology component of the sequence. Many students are required to finish this sequence with BI 234, or Microbiology. Our discipline is also linked with the BioBonds course (BI 112/CH 112) as this course is a required pre-requisite course for the BI 231 course. Students may enroll in BI 233 and BI 234 concurrently, but this requires instructor consent prior to enrollment. Each term, we begin new BI 231-234 sequences so students do not have to always start in the Fall term of each year. We also attempt to offer one night sequence each year to accommodate working students.
If you have any questions, contact the instructors directly by selecting the faculty link above. We are available to discuss your academic needs with you at any time.
Have a good year at Lane Community College.
