Anatomy, Physiology, Microbiology

Welcome to the Discipline of Anatomy, Physiology and Microbiology

skeleton hanging in Anatomy and Physiology classroomThe Anatomy and Physiology Discipline Unit (APDU) offers approximately 50 courses each year (Bi 231-234). Students enrolled in our courses often enter the Family and Health Careers Programs here at Lane, transfer to other FHC programs at other colleges, or use these credits as transferable units to other institutions for application to a bachelor's degree. Therefore, these courses provide both a professional/ technical function as well as a transfer function. Our discipline strives to provide accessible courses to these students each year and assist them toward achieving their career goals in these fields. Our focus is on student learning, retention, and access to material and instructional aids in our courses. We have been very successful in obtaining educational grants, funding for instructional space, and increasing their access to resources in our Science Resource Room (SRC).

"The mission of the Science Department is to assist individuals to achieve their science education needs and goals."


The Anatomy and Physiology Discipline offers the prerequisite Cell Biology for Health Occupations (BI 112) required before taking the A&P Series. The Anatomy and Physiology 1, 2, & 3 series include BI 231, 232, and 233. Many students are required to complete BI 234 Microbiology as well. Students may enroll in BI 233 and BI 234 concurrently, but this requires instructor permission prior to enrollment. Each term, we begin new BI 231-234 sequences so student do not have to always start in the Fall term of each year. 

If you have any questions, contact the instructors directly by selecting the faculty link above. We are available to discuss your academic needs with you at any time.
