Outcomes and Objectives:
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
Untitled document
In order to achieve these learning outcomes, during the course the student will:
1. Describe the basic anatomical design of the human body, including its
  bilateral symmetry, segmentation, tube within a tube design, cavities,
  and fluid compartments.
2. Name the organ systems of the body and describe their basic structural
  design and function.
3. Recognize and describe the major organs of each system, including their
  location in the body, gross anatomy, histological features, and
4. Differentiate the four major tissue types, identify the subtypes of
  each of the major tissue types, and locate them in body structures.
5. Identify the specific anatomical structures listed in the lab manual
  using models, charts, specimens, cadavers, and skeletons.
6. Evaluate the various features of the body which are designed to provide
  protection for the essential organs and functions.
7. Perform a dissection of some major organs in a cadaver.
