4. Course Description:

This course explores the structure and function of the human body at multiple levels: individual cells; their coming together to form tissues; the organization of tissues into organs; organs working together as parts of organ systems; and finally, how those organ systems support one another to maintain the body. Normal structure and function are presented as a starting point, and then the effects of disease processes on structure and function are examined. The effects of disease are also considered at multiple levels: from cells to organ systems; and then beyond the effects on individuals to how diseases affect populations and societies. This course is primarily designed for students enrolled in the HINS Healthcare Administrative Specialist program.
