BIOH 113 - Human Form and Function II

Credit(s): 4

Prerequisite(s): BIOH 104 , or  BIOH 201 and  BIOH 211 .
Pathophysiology (the study of disease) is a close examination of the disease process in the human body.  The course will build on the topics explored in the prerequsite courses (BIOH 104 , BIOH 201 , BIOH 211 ). Body systems will be covered in greater depth, and the focus will be on the interrelationships between systems. Topics in this course include how the body’s normal structure and function can be altered, how the body responds to these disruptions in structure and function (i.e. cause and effect), and current approaches to the treatment of these disruptions. (Fall Semester)

Course Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of the course, students will be able to

  • Explain the human body systems structure and functions. Describe the interrelationship of the body systems particularly in the role of maintaining homeostasis in the body. Examine the impact of disease processes, surgical intervention, pharmaceuticals, trauma and aging on body systems. Demonstrate an understanding of the etiology, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, pathophysiolology, treatment and prognosis of the diseases covered.
