3-Course Human Anatomy & Physiology II Specialization
In this second Human Anatomy & Physiology specialization, you'll continue to explore the fascinating world of the human body. We'll be focusing on the structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) of six remarkable body systems: the cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems.
Our courses are designed to make learning accessible and enjoyable. We'll be using a free, open-source text from OpenStax as our primary resource, and we'll enhance your understanding with various activities and applications. Our approach combines both art and science, making the exploration of the human body a truly enriching experience.
⚠ Warning: You could have a blast!
Who should attend:
- High school students who want to experience a university-level course

- Anyone with an interest in human anatomy and physiology
You will be able to:
- Describe normal human anatomy structure and function for the cardiovascular, lymphatic/immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems
- Describe the components of blood, compare and contrast types of blood vessels, and explain the role and regulation of blood pressure in the human body
- Relate anatomical structure and function at the cellular, tissue, organ, and body system levels to clinical diagnoses and dysfunction of the cardiovascular, lymphatic/immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems
- Explain the normal human pregnancy and birthing process including key milestones in development and delivery
