Preface to the Fourteenth Edition
Human Anatomy and Physiology is a two-semester course sequence (BIO 23 & 24) offered by the
Department of Biology and Medical Laboratory Technology in response to the need for basic information
about the structure and function of the human organism. BIO 23 & 24 are required for all Allied Health
Science students enrolled in the Nursing, Radiology Technology, Therapeutic Recreation and Nuclear
Medicine Technology Programs. The course may also serve as a useful adjunct to other curricula, e.g.,
Medical Laboratory Technology, Community Health, Human Services and some Liberal Arts Options.
Note: your financial aid may not cover courses that are not listed on your curriculum pattern sheet. If you
are enrolled in a program that does not require BIO 23 or 24, please check with your financial aid officer
before registering for the course.
BIO 23 and BIO 24 are conducted in an integrated lecture-laboratory format for the study of physiological
processes, as well as gross and microscopic anatomy. The six hours of class contact hours per week is
equally divided between the lecture and laboratory meetings in the context of a 14-week academic semester
followed by a final lecture examination in the 15th week of the academic semester.
The first semester of the two semester course sequence, BIO 23, covers the following topics and systems of
the human organism: human structural and functional organization, basic chemistry, cell structure and
function, foundations of cell metabolism, histology, the integumentary system, the skeletal system, the
muscular system, the nervous system, and the endocrine system.
The second semester of the two semester course sequence, BIO 24, applies essential concepts from BIO 23
in the study of the following topics and systems of the human organism: cardiovascular system, lymphatic
system and immunity, respiratory system, urinary system and fluid and electrolyte balance, digestive system
and metabolism, and the reproductive system.
The purpose of this guide is to provide a general framework for organizing the content of the course. Your
instructor(s) will give you the most valuable guidance regarding the relative importance of various topics,
therefore you must attend all lecture and lab classes in order to succeed in this course.
This guide contains:
space for you to record important contact information for your instructors and classmates
space for you to record your grades (and formulas for calculating your average)
a calendar showing that dates that your class will meet
course policies and academic responsibilities
information to help you optimize your study efforts to get the best grade
a course syllabus to use as a guide for topic coverage and exam dates
lecture outlines and study questions
instructions for downloading additional lab and lecture documents
Good luck, and best wishes for a successful semester!

This guide is the product of the collaborative effort of many faculty of the Biology and Medical Laboratory Technology Department. It has been
mutating since the first edition up to the present. This guide is a continuous work in progress thanks to the input of students and faculty of the
department. Dr. Ronald Thomas and Dr. Henry Hermo authored the first version in Fall 1988, and many others contributed along its history. Thanks
to Dr. Howard Fuld, and Dr. Maureen Gannon, who reviewed extensively the first editions; and Dr. Nichole McDaniel, Dr. Shylaja Akkaraju, and
Prof. Carlos Liachovitzky, who contributed widely with the most recent versions.
