260.600.01 INTRODUCTION TO THE BIOMEDICAL SCIENCES
Presents basic anatomy and physiology to students through a group learning process that utilizes selected reading assignments, explicit objectives, active group interaction reinforced by preceptors, and short objective tests with immediate feedback. Supplementary lectures focus on basic biology principles underlying current public health research.
1. Utilize the language of biomedical sciences. 2. Understand the structure and function of the major organ systems of the human body. 3. Discuss examples in which the knowledge gained by the above objectives has been applied to the study of specific public health problems. 4. Consult a reference book on human anatomy and physiology. 5. Realize the importance of working together as multidisciplinary public health team. 6. Understand the culture of Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. 7. Develop a network of fellow students, faculty, and professional colleagues.
Upon successfully completing this course, students will be able to:
Describe – in general terms - the structure and function of the major organ systems of the human body, using the language of the biomedical sciences.
Discuss examples in which anatomy & physiology topics have been applied to specific, public health-related problems.
Demonstrate the importance of working together as a multidisciplinary public health team.
Develop a first network of fellow students, faculty and professional colleagues.
Evaluate the culture and administrative procedures of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
