    Does anyone know a school in NYC area that you can take them separate? I would like to take Physiology alone!!!

    Hi,
    I took anatomy first then physiology. Make sure to really learn your anatomy because physiology is that plus more. You learn how the eye sees things for example. You learn how the heart pumps blood, how the muscles contract. Having anatomy first makes it so much easier to grasp the physiology of it all. I liked physio best because it really makes sense how things work. I referenced my anatomy notes quite a bit during lectures so be diligent about saving and organizing those anatomy notes!

    I took physiology the first block of this summer and am now taking anatomy in my second block. I've enjoyed having the two seperated so you can focus on one subject completely, even though in our anatomy class we dabble a bit in phsyiology, just not as thoroughly as the actual course. Good luck in your search!

    Any one? NYC College that offers a Physiology class that is alone and not combined with Anatomy?

    maybe try posting this question in a new thread under the New York state forum. More people from your area will see your question and can help you from there!

    A&P is together at my school. I personally don't see how it can be done seperately. IMO it would make it harder to learn because you must know one thing to understand the other. I don't know....I guess if they have them seperate, it can be done. Good luck!!

    Anatomy is a broad view, physiology is "how it works". Quick and straight answer.
