Human Anatomy and Physiology I (API) is a gateway course to careers in allied health. In order to be competitive for nursing, medical, and physical therapy programs, students need to be successful in API. Yet, most students have not had the experience with the rigor and substantial content of material that is required for this course. In this case study, we used known theories of behavior change that have worked in allied health to improve student success. The results of the study have implications for how and when students are taught accounting topics and the effect on their academic performance.
