ANPS 19 is the first half of an interdisciplinary course sequence covering human anatomy and physiology. ANPS 20 is the second half of this sequence, and these courses are comparable to those taught in the fall and spring semesters of the academic year. ANPS 19 covers basic cell structure, tissues, and the nervous and muscular systems. The summer course format involves didactic lectures presented four days per week, complemented by online laboratory exercises.
Dates: May 20 - June 14 2019; Exam 1 date: 5/28/19 Exam 2 date: 6/3/19 Exam 3 date: 6/10/19 Exam 4 date: 6/17/19
Summer Undergraduate Human Anatomy and Physiology (19-20) is an interdisciplinary, eight week course offered by the faculty of the Department of Neurological Sciences (two parts). This course is specifically designed for students majoring in the health professions who need to obtain a general understanding of human biology. The course format involves didactic lectures presented four days per week, as well as an online laboratory component. ANPS 19 is the first half of this sequence. Special note: The final exam for ANPS 19 will be held on Monday, June 17, 2019 at 9:00 am (which is also the first day of ANPS20). Course Objectives: 1. To provide a common anatomical and physiological language for communication within the health profession. 2. To provide basic information about the microscopic and submicroscopic structure of organs and tissues of the human body. 3. To develop knowledge of the topographic anatomy of the human body by study of the relationships of the organ systems and their surface projections 4. To understand key physiologic principles which pertain to specific organ function.
Lectures for ANPS19 are given from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm, MTWR from May 20 – June 13. The lectures provide a discussion of the essential material to be covered. Students are responsible for information presented in lecture, appearing in the lecture notes, or assigned by a lecturer. Both ANPS19 and ANPS20 will contain a required online laboratory component comprising the fourth credit of this course. The online lab component consists of 12 laboratory assignments, each followed by an online lab quiz (see evaluation section for grading). There will be four non-cumulative 90 minute exams given in Summer ANPS 19. Exams will be given: Tues, May 28; Mon, June 3; Mon, June 10; Mon, June 17. Special Note: Exam #4 will take place on Monday, June 17th, which is the first day of ANPS20. The exams are multiple-choice format, and will include questions from both the lecture material and lab material. (see evaluation section for breakdown).
The final course grade will be based on the four, equally-weighted, exams given during the semester plus the laboratory evaluation. Each lecture exam is worth 20% of the final grade (total 80%); each of the 4 lab exams is worth 2% (total 8%); and each of the 12 lab assignments is worth 1% (total 12%). Evaluation of the required online laboratory component will include completion of 12 laboratory assignments, each assignment followed by a lab quiz. All laboratories will be based on the material given in the lectures the same week. These lab assignments & quizzes must be completed before the exam for each block in order to receive credit. A grade of at least 75% in the post-lab quiz will be required in order to pass each laboratory. Students will be allowed two attempts to complete and pass each lab assignment (before the deadline); only the attempt with the highest score will be considered towards the final grade.
