Human Development and Structure - BioG 2020

Clare McVeigh, PhD, Senior Lecturer in Biology


Fall - 3 Credits

Prerequisites: BIOG 1101, BIOG 1102   

This course will use a systems approach to study human structure, embedding medical terminology throughout. Each system will be examined in terms of early development, histology, functional anatomy, and evolutionary history. It will serve as a “sister course” to Physiology 1, and Physiology 2 so will be closely coordinated with them. Tutorials will be used to emphasize these connections and to introduce pathology. 


Systems covered will include: nervous system, endocrine system, integumentary system, skeletal system, muscular system, respiratory system, circulatory system, digestive system, reproductive system, and urinary system.
