Further, students will interpret and translate medical records and documents.Version FV1.3 Posted 15 DEC 20162

Human Anatomy and PhysiologySubject Code: 072040In this course, students will demonstrate knowledge of body systems with emphasis on the interrelationshipsbetween structure and physical function. Students will analyze and evaluate how the body systems respond tophysical activity, disease, and aging. Students will use data acquisition software to monitor abnormal physiology andbody functions (e.g., muscle movement, reflex, respiratory, and voluntary actions). Further, students will analyzedescriptive results of abnormal physiology and evaluate clinical consequences.Medical and Dental Office TechnologySubject Code: 072155Students will apply fundamental principles of communication, leadership, technology and management as it appliesto the medical office setting. Students will demonstrate documentation and record keeping procedures set forth bynational accrediting organizations.Health Sciences CapstoneSubject Code: 072105The capstone course provides opportunities for students to apply knowledge, attitudes and skills that were learnedin Health Sciences program in a more comprehensive and authentic way. Capstones often include project/problembased learning opportunities that occur both in and away from school. Under supervision of the school and throughcommunity partnerships, students may combine classroom learning with work experience. This course can bedelivered through a variety of delivery methods including cooperative education or apprenticeship.Version FV1.3 Posted 15 DEC 20163
