Anatomy and Physiology I Course Overview

  • ANPS 1010, Anatomy and Physiology I, is the first of a series of two courses in Anatomy and Physiology. It is designed to provide the foundation for students that intend to pursue a career in healthcare or seek admission into a professional school.

    This course is structured to teach the anatomy and physiology of the human body by organ systems and includes a laboratory component that reinforces concepts learned in the theory component of the course, while simultaneously providing opportunities to master skills that are commonly used in healthcare practice. Emphasis is placed on clinical applications, structure and function, integration of body systems, homeostasis, and critical thinking.

    Topics covered in this course include an overview of anatomy concepts, levels of organization of the human body (molecules to organismal), histology, integumentary system, skeletal system, muscular system, human development, and reproductive system. Delivery method: fully online.

    Desirable background: Basic biology and chemistry.

Anatomy and Physiology I Course Outcomes

  • Apply Anatomical terminology to locate, identify and describe bodily structures
  • Describe the different levels of organization of the human body
  • Explain the different mechanisms that the body uses to maintain homeostasis
  • Outline the name, location and functions of the organs that compose the organ systems studied in this course
  • Explain the interactions of individual organ systems with other organ systems
  • Evaluate how structure leads to function in the context of the human body
  • Apply physiology concepts in the laboratory setting
  • Analyze physiological variables to determine function

Anatomy and Physiology I Lecture & Lab Course Prerequisites

  • There are no prerequisites for ANPS 1010 Anatomy and Physiology I

How do exams work?

All exams are taken online. Major exams are required to be proctored online through ProctorU. For instructions on how to take your exams online, visit UNE Online’s ProctorU site. Please note exams must also be proctored with the UNE-approved external webcam.


How do labs work?

This course uses the labs and lab quizzes in the McGraw Hill Connect platform. You will need to purchase access to the platform that will be good for both this course and the second one in the sequence. Lab activities and quizzes are to be completed on the platform and your grade will transfer to the course automatically.
