Biology 105: Anatomy & Physiology

About this Course

Explore various systems of the human body, including the cardiovascular, digestive, endocrine and muscular systems, through Biology 105: Anatomy & Physiology, an online course offered by Education Portal. The brief yet comprehensive video lessons in this course were designed by our team of experienced professional educators. You'll start by completing a review of inorganic chemistry before delving into more complex topics, like biochemistry and human development from conception through childbirth. Other lessons cover cell biology, blood vessels and the five senses. Each lesson features a self-assessment quiz that can help you prepare for the Anatomy and Physiology Excelsior exam. If you pass the Excelsior exam, you can earn actual college credit.
