Our online anatomy and physiology course is a self-paced class that introduces learners with little or no prior knowledge to anatomy & physiology. Course content is presented according to body systems, and focuses on the body working together to promote homeostasis. Mastery of key concepts is encouraged with full-color art, animations, audio and video. The course contains multiple exercises, games, quizzes and tests to reinforce learning and test knowledge of anatomy & physiology. Everything you need to complete the class is contained online, including an electronic version of the textbook. The course is perfect for non-medical professionals who want to learn anatomy and physiology to pursue a field in the healthcare or pharmaceutical industries.
To determine if this course will meet specific college or university requirements, submit the course objectives and accreditation information to your school for approval prior to enrolling.
