COURSE CONTENT

Student Learning Outcomes:
Untitled document
Upon completion of this course students will be able to:
1. Describe in detail the structure and basic functions of the tissues, organs, and systems of the
    human body.  
2. Identify tissues and organs of the body using histological slides, models, charts, specimens,
    human cadavers, and skeletons.

Objectives: Untitled document
In order to achieve these learning outcomes, during the course the students 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 structure and functions.
3. Recognize and describe the organs of each system, including their location in the body, gross
    anatomy, histological features, and functions.
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 textbook using histological slides,
    models, charts, specimens, human cadavers, and skeletons.
6. Evaluate the various features of the body which provide protection for the essential organs and
    functions.
7. Perform a dissection of some major organs in a cadaver.
