This course in Human Biology focuses on how the
systems of the human body operate and how various
illnesses interfere with that operation. Lectures cover
organ systems from a functional aspect, then diseases
from a malfunctional perspective, with special attention
given to the connection between malfunctions and
symptoms. The course also covers how treatment for

ethics and epidemiology. Laboratory approaches
