Biology 5315 - Advanced Human Anatomy

    This is an advanced anatomy course covering the anatomy of the peripheral nervous system.  Biology 2325 - Human Anatomy is a prerequisite to this course.  The advanced anatomy course analyzes developmental and adult anatomy with the peripheral nervous system as a focal point.  Students will establish an unparalleled knowledge of the peripheral nervous system from developmental, comparative, and adult human anatomy perspectives.  Students will learn how to assimilate extensive amounts of knowledge with the use of simplifying concepts and techniques.  Students learn how a knowledge of the peripheral nervous system allows them to think critically to solve clinically related problems.  The course will conclude by considering the connections made by the peripheral nervous system with the central nervous system.

        The class is taught each spring semester and consists of a two hour lecture on Monday and Wednesday and a two hour lab/discussion on Thursday.
