Anatomy & Physiology II (BIO 210E/BIO 210LE)

Anatomy & Physiology II Lecture (BIO 210E) and Lab (BIO 210LE) are self-paced, online courses. These courses are a continuation of Anatomy & Physiology I (BIO 110) and explore the following systems: endocrine, immune, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive. The concept of homeostasis and the underlying principles common to all systems are applied from the submolecular to the organismal level for each system. After completing the courses above, you'll be well-prepared to pursue a degree in fields such as nursing, occupational therapy, physician assistant, and physical therapy.

Prerequisites: Anatomy & Physiology I (BIO 110) or equivalent

MCPHS also offers Anatomy & Physiology I. Please visit our Anatomy & Physiology I prerequisite course page for more information.

The Office of Student Access and Accommodations (OSAA) is a part of the Division of Student Affairs and provides accommodations to students across all MCPHS campuses (Manchester, Boston and Worcester) and online.

Due to the format of School of Professional Studies (SPS) courses, students planning to take self-paced courses are encouraged, though not required, to reach out to OSAA prior to registering for any courses. This will give OSAA ample time to work with the student to review their request for reasonable accommodations.

Students can visit the OSAA website for additional information.
