Human Anatomy & Physiology Orientation




I look forward to working with you this semester. Together, we will explore the most complex organism in the universe, The Human Body.

Before we start, it's important that you review and understand the information covered in my orientation. The most important idea covered in this orientation is our "shared responsibilities and shared expectations".

The links for the syllabus, the Science Department's Learning Objectives, and our lecture/lab schedules are "printable pages". Additional reference material about the class is also provided below. It is your responsibility to review this information and ask questions if you do not understand the significance of these statements

A Wise Man said, "A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step". Well, this on-line orientation is your first step into my world of anatomy and physiology. Remember, seeking knowledge is not a destination, it is a lifelong journey!
