Prereq: Must be concurrently enrolled in or have completed the second year of core science graduation requirement. Students in this course have priority into the Sports Med pathway. This is two- quarter class will take an in-depth look at both anatomy and physiology of the human body and its systems(i.e. cardiovascular, skeletal, muscular, skin, special senses, nerves, and more). Additional focus will be on the study of diseases and disorders, current events in science, and careers in health and medicine. Labs, activities, and dissections will occupy 40% of class time. This is a perfect class for someone interested in pursuing a career in health, medicine, physical fitness, or physical therapy. There is an opportunity to earn honors credit. Fulfills UC/CSU "D" or "G" requirement.
Anatomy & Physiology
Students who take Sports Medicine engage in an in-depth study of whole-body anatomy and physiology as a basis for understanding the process involved in injury treatment, management, and healing. Students will be introduced to medical terminology an learn evaluation techniques for common diseases and injuries, particularly sports injuries, as well as strategies for rehabilitation and recovery. Hands-on laboratory experiences are an integral part of the course. The purpose of Sports Medicine is to prepare students for higher-level anatomy, physiology and health care coursework.
Introduction to Sports Medicine
This course is the capstone class to the Sports Medicine Pathway. The purpose of this class is to build on basic skills learned in Sports medicine, and allow students opportunities to add rigorous academic content in order to gain a deeper understanding of sports related injuries and treatment.
