Anatomy + Physiology

Anatomy and Physiology, taught by Dr. Gatti, is a class that picks up where freshman biology ends. With a focus on health and medicine, the course is about the structure and function of the human body. The class also explores how the tissues, organs, and organ systems of the human body work together to maintain homeostasis or equilibrium. Students can expect a teaching style that is a mixture of lecturing, labs, and case studies. The curriculum is organized into units on organ systems, such as the nervous or cardiovascular systems. As a part of case studies, students will also take field trips to local hospitals. Although the class has a reputation for being hard, students report that it is rewarding.
