Overview: Submit your bulleted list for the organ system assessment to the discussion board.
You must include the anatomical location of the particular organ
system, key anatomical features, key physiological functions and histology, as well as some interesting facts, findings, or health issues related to this system
supported by appropriate citations.
In response to your classmates’ posts on other systems, comment on their choices, describing at least one function that
requires the interaction of both the system you have chosen and the system the classmate has chosen.
This milestone will be submitted in Module Two.
Students are required to post one initial post and to follow up with at least two response posts for each discussion board assignment.
This initial post should
be a bulleted list.
Citations should be written in APA format.
For your initial post (1) you must:
? Identify the organ system’s location as presented in the anatomical
position within the human body and its key anatomical features
? Identify the key physiological functions of the organ system as well as its
key histology features (i.
, the cell and tissue types found in this organ
system) that enable its physiological functions
? List several interesting facts, findings, or health issues related to this
organ system (e.
, three things that you did not know about the
respiratory system, or that recently researchers have discovered how to
synthesize human tissues using 3-D printing).
Indicate the source(s) of
your information (e.
, website or article link; do not use Wikipedia)
? Complete the initial post by Thursday at 11:59 p.
of your local time
For your response posts (2) you must:
? Reply to at least two different classmates outside of your own initial
? Complete the two response posts by Sunday 11:59 p.
of your local
? For each, include a very brief description of at least one function that
requires the interaction of both the system you have chosen and the
system the classmate has chosen
Guidelines for Submission: Provide an organized list of at least 10 bullet points for the organ assessment, addressing the critical elements.
You must use and cite
at least one reference.
Reply to at least two different classmates.
