Step inside the human body and explore the systems that help us move, protect us from disease or injury, and facilitate communication within the body and with the outside world. Solve a medical mystery. Analyze a medical case file and diagnose disease. Design experiments to explore structure and function of the human body. How do the systems of the body work together to keep us well?
Principles of Biomedical Sciences
Students will explore concepts of biology and medicine to determine factors that led to the death of a fictional person. Students will examine autopsy reports, investigate medical history, and explore medical treatments that might have prolonged the person’s life. Students are introduced to human physiology, basic biology, medicine, and research processes while designing their own experiments to solve problems.
