Biology 2325 - Human Anatomy

This is a foundation course in anatomy for biology, pre-medical, pre-dental, pre-physical therapy, pre-nursing, pre-pharmacy, pre-occupational therapy, and sports science majors. It takes a holistic approach to anatomy providing the student with an excellent analytical tool to apply to the health and exercise science fields. Comparative, developmental, and systematic foundations are established in order to logically approach regional patterns of structural morphology. The student is introduced to anatomy with an overview of histology and organ systems.  This foundation is then applied to a regional synthesis of the body, interweaving the detail into clear patterns of organization that simplify the learning process. No previous anatomy background is required.

The class is taught autumn, spring, and summer semesters (the summer semester is taught by Shawn Miller). The class is comprised of four 50-minute lectures and a two hour laboratory each week.
