Structure and Integrative Functions of the Main Organ Systems

Structure and Integrative Functions of the Main Organ Systems

by Geoffrey Meyer, PhD, Thad Wilson, PhD, Peter Delves, PhD

This course covers the material of content category 3B of the official MCAT exam content outline.

Specialized cells are organized in tissues that make up organs. According to the functions these organs carry out, they are further categorized into organ systems, which are biological systems that perform key functions to ensure the survival of the larger organism to which they belong. The human body consists of nine major organ systems: the integumentary system, the musculoskeletal system, the respiratory system, the circulatory system, the gastrointestinal system, the renal system, the nervous system, the endocrine system, and the reproductive system.

In this course, the student will be introduced to the structure and functions of the main organ systems. For optimal comprehension, the student must have a preliminary understanding of molecular and cellular biology, human anatomy, and physiology.
