  • Credit transferable: CSU, UC
  • General Ed. Credit: CSU, Area B2; MPC, Area B (with ANAT 2)

ANAT 2 HUMAN ANATOMY LAB

2 units • LG • Six hours lab

Structural organization of the human body: gross and microscopic structure of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, sensory, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems, from cellular to organ system levels of organization. It is appropriate for majors in nursing, allied health, kinesiology, and other health-related majors. This course addresses human structures studied via models, extensive mammalian dissection, and cadaver.

  • Credit transferable: CSU, UC
  • General Ed. Credit: CSU, Area B2, B3; MPC, Area B (with ANAT 1)

ANAT 5 BASIC HUMAN ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY

4 units • LG-P/NP • Three hours lecture; three hours lab

This course explores the structure and function of systems of the human body. Laboratory activities include study of human parts and models, and measurements of physiological phenomena. The course is appropriate for majors in medical assisting, psychology, social service, art, some other paramedical and health occupations, and for the liberal arts student.
