There are schools that offer courses which could be a part of a degree or certificate program. The Anatomy and Physiology course is required for a healthcare profession degree. The online course offers an interactive learning system that allows the students to learn the subject using the internet. The course may include several subjects such as chemistry, skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine systems as well as the study of the tissues. The course may take several weeks or months.
This online course will be based on the student’s availability but will follow a certain timeline of course to make the program as formal as possible. Students with little or no preceding knowledge of anatomy & physiology are welcome. The content of the course is presented according to body systems. The students will learn through a series of multiple drills, games, puzzles and tests to strengthen learning and check their knowledge of anatomy & physiology.
At the end of the course, the students will be able to distinguish terms related to the human body’s anatomy and demonstrate the anatomical position of the components of a cell as well as explain each function. They will also learn to explain the anatomic terms, the major cavities of the body and the major constituents in the blood and lymph systems, the digestive system and relate them to the aspects of digestion.
