This course sequence consists of three, 4-credit courses (total of 12 term credits), which is usually equivalent to 8 semester credits. Each course is offered every term and should be taken in order. Each course has lecture and lab components. Lectures focus on physiology and rely on lecture videos, exercises and assigned reading. Labs focus on anatomy studied from a 3D interactive anatomy program, images and drawings and lab videos. We use weekly quizzes and tests to reinforce learning and test student’s knowledge in both lecture and labs. A Proctor is required for examinations (four in each course), but is not required for quizzes.

Males typically produce billions of sperm each month,  many of which are capable of fertilization. Females typically produce one egg a month that can be fertilized into an embryo. Thus during a lifetime males are able to father a significantly greater number of children than females can give birth to. The most fertile female, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, was the wife of Feodor Vassilyev of Russia (1707–1782) who had 69 surviving children. The most prolific father of all time is believed to be the last Sharifian Emperor of Morocco, Mulai Ismail (1646–1727) who reportedly fathered more than 800 children from a harem of 500 women.
