BIOL_SCI 316-CN : Human Structure and Function


This course will provide introductory anatomy instruction using recent pedagogical frameworks which present basic human structure in a clinical anatomy context through an emphasis on clinical case studies investigated and presented by collaborative student teams. Coverage focus will be on the musculoskeletal and related systems. The regional anatomy of the muscles, bones and joints in the human body serves as the basis for more general biomechanical principles of anatomical structure, support and movement. Student case study presentations will be complemented by selected short lectures as well as interactive lab exercises using skeletons, anatomical models, and on-line resources. In-class demonstrations integrating anatomical prosections with the Anatomage virtual 3D dissection table system will provide important spatial perspectives of actual cadaver anatomy. Synthesizing these multiple modalities will help construct a strong foundation for subsequent study of human structure and function in multiple healthcare and biology contexts.
