"Tim Patrick Furman University"

Dr. Tim Patrick is a full professor in the department of health and exercise science where he has taught for 20 years. He received a B.S. degree in biology from Furman University and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Kinesiology (Exercise Physiology) from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. After completing graduate work, he returned to Furman in 1992 to join the Health and Exercise Science department. He has taught both graduate and undergraduate courses but mainly teaches undergraduate courses in anatomy, anatomy & physiology, cardiovascular physiology, exercise testing and wellness. He has published articles and given presentations on: acute cardiovascular and neural adjustments to resistance exercise; age-related changes in body composition; accuracy of body composition techniques; resistance training and metabolism; and, work economy during cycling. His hobbies are varied but he is especially passionate about spending time with his family in outdoor activities including sports, cycling, hiking, camping, hunting and fishing. He has been married for 25 years to his wife, Julie. They have three children.

Name Title Description

HSC-101

Wellness Concepts

Wellness concepts which promote lifetime fitness and healthy lifestyle habits. Topics include: aerobic and muscular conditioning, nutrition, and medical aspects of fitness. Participation in activities to develop cardio-respiratory endurance, muscular strength and endurance, and flexibility.

HSC-210

Anatomy & Physiology I

An integrative study of the structure and function of the following body systems: skeletal, muscular, nervous, cardiovascular, and respiratory. The integration of structural and functional aspects of the human body will be facilitated by the use of anatomical models, interactive computer software, and data collection and analysis. It is recommended that this course be enrolled early in the major.

HSC-211

Anatomy & Physiology II

Continuation of HSC-210. An integrative study of the structure and function of the following body systems: endocrine, lymphatic, digestive, urinary, reproductive, integumentary. The integration of structural and functional aspects of the human body will be facilitated by the use of anatomical models, interactive computer software, and data collection and analysis. Students may not receive credit for either BIO-118 or BIO-322 after successful completion.

HSC-331

Cardiovsclr Fnctning Analysis

Concepts and laboratory experiments concerning the mechanisms by which the human body functions Special reference to the effects of acute and chronic exercise. Not open to freshmen.

HSC-332

Graded Exercise Test Practicum

Practicum experience in laboratory for assessing cardiac and respiratory function, exercise capacity, body structure and composition via techniques of electrocardiography, impedance cardiography, spirometry, graded exercise testing, anthropometry, densitometry, etc.
