CBAM 1410 Gross and Developmental Anatomy ()


Credits: 9

Course Description:

This course is designed to provide the student with a working knowledge of the gross anatomical structures of the human body, their functional relationships and their development. Emphasis is placed on the regional dissection of the entire cadaver. Laboratory sessions begin with a discussion of the structures to be dissected. Lectures introduce regions or systems, supplemented with videotapes of prosections and demonstrations. Lectures emphasize the relevance of anatomical principles to clinical application. Working in small groups with the anatomy lab is favored throughout the course. Human development is also discussed through a series of lectures outlining the embryogenesis of specific organ systems.

Prerequisites: Open to Ph.D. students only.

Laboratory and lectures. Letter-graded.
