ANTHP 30600 - Human Anatomy
The goal of this course is to understand basic human anatomy: know all of the bones, muscles, major nerves and vessels in the human body, how they are organized, and how they function. Typically, there will be two class periods spent on a given topic: the first class meeting will be a lecture and the second class meeting on a given topic will provide a laboratory setting where students can handle and work with real osteological specimens and/or anatomical models. A given lecture will provide a synthesis of a particular anatomical region and the hands-on details of regional anatomy will then be learned in the associated laboratory session. To gain the most from each lecture and laboratory session, you must do the assigned readings and relevant exercises in the lab workbook beforehand. The laboratory workbook is a required acquisition. Any anatomy textbook will provide you with the necessary reading for lectures, and the purchase of an anatomy atlas is highly recommended as well. In order to do well in the course, additional study time with the anatomical models may be necessary. We will set up a system to encourage and facilitate study time outside of class.
