*Note - Final Exams will require supervision. Details will follow from your instructor if you choose to register.
Note that there will be an opportunity for a dual credit with a Saskatchewan Polytechnic Course called MTER 180: Medical Terminology. This is a 10 hour project that would replace the project that exists in this course. More information will be provided in the Health Science course after you register.
This course will challenge students to look at the health science field from holistic and analytic perspectives to provide a basis for making sound personal health choices. Students will apply information in the areas of medical knowledge systems and ethics, human anatomy and physiology, nutrition and metabolism, and medical diagnostics. Understanding the basic anatomy and physiology of the human body will provide a context for studying the normal and abnormal functioning of various body systems and the tools and techniques used to diagnose those systems. Students will also investigate the range of health science careers and post-secondary programs available in Saskatchewan.
