Anatomy & Physiology

Betsy Brandon and Ollie Baker study muscles on a cat specimen.Here at Clatsop CC, we offer a rigorous full year Human Anatomy and Physiology sequence for majors students seeking degrees in Nursing, Radiology, Dental Hygiene, and more.  Students interested in taking the Fall, Winter, and Spring term sequence should complete the BI 112  prerequisite, prior to their enrollment in A&P, with a grade of C or better. For course descriptions or access to the college catalog, scroll down.

January 2013 marks our transition into our third year of occupancy in Columbia Hall. Having modern science facilities with state of the art ventilation has improved the learning experience of Clatsop CC students.  The following picture shows the Anatomy lab set up with students hard at work.New Anatomy lab at Clatsop Community College in full use by students.

Play-doh model of muscle anatomy and connective tissue.Our students use a variety of tools to study subjects related to Anatomy and Physiology, including wet and dry labs.  Students start off the class with dissection and we provide bone models, histological slides, felt models of muscle physiology and even use Play-doh to build anatomical models. The instructor, Nichole Warwick, pays conscious attention to the variety of learning styles that students come to class with and attempts to engage all learning styles.  This includes online tutorials for the auditory learner, lots of diagram time for the visual learner, and hands on activities for the kinesthetic learner. The combination of these techniques also helps the multimodal learner.Justine Grimmit, Chelsea Johnson, and April Helligso study a felt model to learn about muscle physiology.

 Justin Laird works through the neuomuscular junction with the aid of Chelsea Johnson and Ashley Sexton.

Course Descriptions are as follows:

  • BI 112 and BI 112L - CELL BIOLOGY FOR HEALTH 

(3.00 Lecture, 3.00 Lab Hrs./Wk.) 4 Credits

Students learn basic concepts of matter, atoms and radioactivity, compounds, organic compounds, intermolecular forces, solutions, acids and bases, enzymes, carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, cell chemistry, cell anatomy and physiology, and cell reproduction. Students apply science processes to health related problems. Although this course emphasizes allied health applications, it transfers as a general education (AAOT) lab science. Dental Hygiene and Dental Assistant students should take the CH 104-106 series offered every other even year. BI 112 acts as a Prerequisite to BI 231 (Anatomy and Physiology) and BI 234 (Microbiology). Prerequisite: MTH 70 or higher, with a C grade or better. Co-requisite: BI 112 with BI 112L. Offered Winter, Spring, and Summer terms.

For more information on BI 112, contact Michael Bunch.

  • BI 231 and BI 231L - HUMAN ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY I 

(3.00 Lecture, 3.00 Lab Hrs./Wk.) 4 Credits

Students master knowledge and concepts in the organization of
the human body, homeostasis, cells and tissues, the skeletal and
muscular systems, and the special senses. Laboratory investigation and discovery are used for both application and problem solving case studies relating organ systems to clinical considerations. The yearlong sequence provides students with the knowledge of the form and function of the dynamic human body which is required for health service occupations and further study in the biological sciences. Prerequisite: One year of high school biology or one term of college biology (BI 112 or 211) and one year of high school chemistry or one term of college chemistry (CH 104) or instructor approval. Co-requisite: BI 231 with BI 231L. Offered Fall term.

  • BI 232 and BI 232L - HUMAN ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY II 

(3.00 Lecture, 3.00 Lab Hrs./Wk.) 4 Credits

Students learn the form and function of the dynamic human body
which is required for health service occupations and further study in the biological sciences. Students master knowledge and concepts of the nervous system, the endocrine system, and the cardiovascular system, including body fluids. Laboratory investigations will use hands on activities, examine scientific reasoning, evaluate models, and develop clinical skills.  Prerequisite: BI 231 and 231L. Co-requisite: BI 232 with BI 232L. Offered Winter term.

  • BI 233 and BI 233L- HUMAN ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY III

(3.00 Lecture, 3.00 Lab Hrs./Wk.) 4 Credits

Students learn the form and function of the dynamic human body
which is required for health service occupations and further study in the biological sciences. Students master knowledge and concepts concerning the immune system, respiratory system, the gastrointestinal system, the renal system, heredity, development, and reproduction. Inquiry based methods are used during laboratory investigations to teach students to use evidence to synthesize concepts related to physiology. Prerequisite: BI 232 and 232L. Co-requisite: BI 233 with BI 233L. Offered Spring term.
