Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. describe the basic physiological function of the nervous, cardiovascular, neuromuscular, endocrine, respiratory, digestive, urinary, reproductive and integument systems for food and companion animals.
2. apply analytical thinking and critical synthesis of knowledge related to physiological and anatomical functions.
3. identify structures of the skeletal system of the cow, horse, dog and cat uses provided models and individual bones.
4. dissect structures of the digestive, skeletal, muscular, endocrine, urinary, reproductive and integument systems from preserved cat specimens.
5. describe the anatomical structures of the above mentioned systems on weekly lab quizzes and three major lab practicals.
