Anatomy & Physiology: Filtration and Reproduction

Rice University via Coursera


This course of the second A&P specialization concludes with a systems-based approach to human anatomy and physiology at the organ, organ system, and organism level with the major body systems related to blood filtration and continuity of life: the urinary and reproductive systems. Course material will cover both the structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) of each system with direct application to human development and disease. After completing this course, you will be able to: 1. Identify the major parts of the urinary and reproductive systems; 2. Describe normal human anatomy structure and function for the urinary and reproductive systems; 3. Relate anatomical structure and function at the cellular, tissue, organ, and body system levels to clinical diagnoses and dysfunction of the urinary system; and 4. Explain the process of typical human gestation and delivery.
