Course Description

This course presents many of the topics found in a typical 2-semester college anatomy and physiology course.

The topics are presented through animated videos and an ebook (An Easy Guide to Learning Anatomy and Physiology). Each body system is presented separately and there are quizzes at the end of each section. The typical time to complete this course is from about 8 - 12 weeks.

Anyone wishing to learn about the anatomy and physiology of the human body will find this course useful, particularly students in allied health programs such as nursing, physical therapy, pre-chiropractic, and pre-medicine.

High school students taking A&P should find this course helpful as well.

This course is useful as a stand alone course or for supporting existing A&P courses. It also serves as a great review of A&P.


What are the requirements?

  • High school reading level.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Identify anatomical structures of the human body
  • Understand anatomical terminology
  • Understand the physiology of human body systems

What is the target audience?

  • This course will benefit allied health program students (nursing, physical therapy, pre-medicine, pre-chiropractic, and other health programs). This course will also benefit high school biology/anatomy and physiology students and those wishing to review human anatomy and physiology.
