Anatomy and Physiology are science disciplines that explore the human body and biological systems in more detail. Topics include: anatomical terminology, cells and tissues, functional systems (skeletal, muscular, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, reproductive, nervous), and mammalian dissections. Prerequisite: Successful completion of Biology prior to taking this course.

Forensic Science

Forensic Science integrates biology, anatomy, chemistry, physics, and earth science with an emphasis on complex reasoning and critical thinking. Students use technology, communication skills, language arts, family and consumer science, mathematics and social studies to complete authentic performance assessments. Prerequisite: Successful completion of biology, chemistry and human anatomy.
Research and Ethics in Healthcare
The Research and Ethics in Healthcare class is designed to teach students the basics of research and ethics. Students will learn the different types of research and the elements that go into developing and implementing these different approaches.They will learn how to develop original, high-quality research questions and show thorough evidence to support their conclusion. Their work will include field research where they will visit sites that will support their research initiative. They will explore and grapple with ethical issues in healthcare through discussions, debates, and journal club presentations. They will connect their learning in a final research paper and symposium presentation. 
Care & Prevention of Athletic Injuries (Sports Medicine)

This course is intended to enable students to gain knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the human body, and develop skills related to the nature, prevention, care, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries.
