Untitled document
Upon completion of this course students will be able to:
1. Describe the relation of anatomy to other biological disciplines and
  the field of medicine.
2. Name the steps of the scientific method and describe the relation of
  the method to current knowledge of the human anatomy.
3. Name the organ systems of the body, describe their basic structural
  design and function.
4. Apply appropriate laboratory skills, including use of a light
  microscope, observation and comparison of tissue structure, and use of
  basic anatomical terminology.
5. Identify the specific anatomical structures listed in the lab manual
  using models, charts, specimens, and skeletons.
6. Utilize appropriate laboratory resources, including texts, lab manuals,
  reference books, charts, models, laboratory specimens to enhance the
  study of histological and anatomical structures.
7. Apply theoretical and scientific knowledge of anatomical systems to
  evaluate or analyze previously unseen structures.
