The purpose of the HAPS Learning Outcomes Project is to provide a set of goals and learning outcomes for a two-semester course sequence in human anatomy and physiology (A&P) intended to prepare students for a variety of clinical and academic programs.
The documents in this project can be used as
o a benchmark for instructors currently teaching A&P courses
o a guide for those developing new courses
These documents are not intended as a mandate or an infringement upon academic freedom, but rather as a guide for improved student learning.
Instructors should realize that they are
o not required to use every outcome in the tables
o welcome to include additional outcomes of their own
Instructors should feel free to cover the outcomes in different orders, or in different places within the course, than where they are presented here.
The HAPS C&I Committee will occasionally review and update the documents of the Learning Outcomes Project. Comments related to the learning outcomes or supporting documents are welcome and may be sent to committee chair (o be considered for the next revision.
Content modules may be regrouped as desired at different teaching institutions.
