Human Anatomy & Morphology
This course is designed to introduce the foundations of human structure and function to students at all levels of post-secondary education. Through a series of learning modules, students will develop an understanding of the architecture of the human body through interactive study using a virtual cadaver. This course will survey the gross and microscopic anatomy of the body organ systems including the skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic/immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary and reproductive systems.
After completing ANAT 270, students will be able to:
- Explain the basic language of human anatomy and apply standard anatomical terms and concepts for the purpose of identification, communication and critical reading of relevant anatomical (medical) literature.
- Analyze the gross (macroscopic) and histology (microscopic) anatomy (and some relevant function) of the tissues and organs that make up the human body.
- Develop and apply a systematic logical thinking process to help you work through understanding the structure of the human body.
- Describe the inseparable relationship between histology and gross anatomy with respect to structure and function, and be able to apply that understanding.
