ADV. HEALTH SCIENCE - MEDICAL ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY 1110 & 1111
College: HTHS 1110 & HTHS 1111 (Biomedical Core) - 8 credits
High School: Advanced Health Science 1110 & 1111 (A83543C, A83544C) - 2 credits
This college course is a two-semester anatomy and physiology sequence that focuses on the structure and function of the human body. The first semester includes atomic and molecular levels of organization, cell biology and metabolism, microbiology, and the integumentary, skeletal and muscular body systems. The second semester includes the nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular (blood), cardiovascular (heart and blood vessels), respiratory, digestive, urinary, & reproductive body systems. Various organ dissections will occur throughout the course. At the conclusion of the year, students will visit a cadaver lab. ALC pre-medical students are strongly encouraged to join the high school HOSA club (a student organization for future health professionals).
Students who complete both HTHS 1110 & 1111 through WSU will fulfill their biomedical core requirement. Also, if a student earns a C or better, these courses will transfer across to most state colleges as college anatomy and physiology and fulfill any major or general education requirements there.
