Learning Outcomes

Students are familiar with the course dealt with organs and organ systems of the structure and the associated Latin terminology. Students are able to place the location of the organs in the human body, understand the importance of organ systems throughout the body's activities and identify potential structural-place with functional disorder. Students are familiar with the nervous system and the central nervous system structure and function, essentially, to understand the brain's structure and function, be able to describe the different structure and function of the senses, to understand the sensation of pain concept, part of the different blood groups and transfer of the chart, to understand the hormones in the importance of the human life cycle, as well as the autonomic nervous system and co-regulation of the endocrine system of vital signs to understand the body's temperature regulation mechanism and is able to increase the body's structure and function.
