B= lab and lecture combined
Must include, but are not limited to:
This course must include a greater than 80% hands-on learning supporting the course outcomes. Laboratory content must be considered when matching courses to this descriptor. Typical lab activities would involve investigation or activities related to human respiration, cardiac function, blood pressure, acid-base balance, urinary output, sensory reflexes and sensory systems or similar activities that illustrate the principles of human body function and homeostasis. Lab experimentation should involve the scientific method.
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
|Methods of Evaluation||
Objective and subjective examinations and lab reports.
Practical examinations, case studies, and clinical applications may be included.
Current (within 5 years) college level Physiology text such as Vander, Silverthorn, Fox, and current laboratory manual or lab manual developed on site.
Support materials such as BioPac or data acquisition systems, and PhysioEx or similar interactive computer programs are appropriate for the course.
