“This course is very closely related to Biology 12, which makes it a lighter workload for those who have previously taken that course. As well, the professor keeps the class engaged so studying for this course is less of a task. The labs are also very interesting and very easy.”

Course Description: from http://web.uvic.ca/calendar2014-09/CDs/EPHE/241.html

The study of the integrated functions of physiological systems with emphasis on the nervous, endocrine, muscular, cardiovascular and respiratory systems.

Prerequisites: 141 or PE 141.

Units: 1.5, Hours: 3-2

“It’s very relevant to medicine. It’s all about human systems, kind of like BIO 12, but more in-depth of course. You only really need to do much week-to-week work, except for the lab, so it’s fairly easy that way. It’s also quite interesting, and there is a great prof!”

“Very interesting – deals not only with proper nutrition but also with weight loss fads, cleanses, exercise supplements, organic food, vegetarian diet, eating disorders, binge drinking, GMOs, pesticide use etc. VERY easy – l can’t even get over how ridiculously easy this course is! Also lots of videos! :)”

Systematic study of human anatomy emphasizing the relationship between structure and anatomical function. Involves detailed examination of human tissues, organs, and structural components of all physiological systems (neural, muscular, skeletal, integument, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, renal, lymphatic, endocrine, reproductive) emphasizing those involved in human movement. Mandatory system-focused weekly laboratories using human skeletons, fresh tissue dissections, computer graphics, anatomical charts, and plastinated models complement lectures to provide an understanding of the structural organization of the human body.

Units: 1.5, Hours: 3-2


Member Comments:
“Very useful for polishing up a general anatomical overview of the body, as well as the opportunity to get more fine tuned within the area. Will help with medicine, the MCAT, and boost interest for medicine.”

“While Human Anatomy was a big time commitment, it was also tons of fun. There’s a great, supportive community of people who are interested in medicine to keep you motivated in the labs!”

“Very useful. Broad overview of the body.”
