    About This Course

    This college-level course focuses on the conceptual framework of Human Anatomy and Physiology and provides a comprehensive overview of the integrative mechanisms that contribute to the function of the human body. The course places emphasis on organization and overview of the human body, chemical reactions, maintenance of the body, integration, regulatory mechanisms and the dynamics of support and motion.

    Course Objectives

    After completing this course, you will be able to:

    • Explain the fundamental concepts of anatomy and physiology, and the organizational scheme and standard terminology of the body.
    • Explain the major chemical reactions, chemical constituents of the body, and the equilibrium state; explain the skeletal system, the supporting tissue, tissue physiology, and muscle tissue.
    • Explain the endocrine system, nervous system, histological and functional classification of general and special sensory receptors, and structure and function of each special sense organ.
    • Explain the respiratory, circulatory, digestive, and urinary systems and the mechanism of metabolism.
    • Explain the acid-base balance and fluid compartments.
    • Explain the function of the human reproductive system and its principal components and describe prenatal development and process of labor and delivery.

  • About Instructor

    Manal
    Manal El Saati graduated high school in 1990 with honors and was granted a full scholarship from the Harriris Foundation in Lebanon to further her education in sciences. She graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Biology from the American University of Beirut in 1994. But her love for knowledge and education did not stop there. She continued her studies in the same university and achieved a higher degree in education where she mastered the skills of teaching college students to succeed in sciences. She taught Anatomy and Physiology for 10 years. She worked as a lab instructor in the Lebanese university for 4 years. She was a member of the Lebanese committee of education. She compiled many science exams and corrected official tests. She got married in 1999 and came to the United States with her family in 2008. She joined our instructor staff in 2009. She teaches A&P, Microbiology, and Biologogy. Her main goal is to transcend her knowledge to her students and see them succeed in pursing their dreams.
