ANAT 1516: Anatomical Sciences I

This is an integrated course combining the four traditional medical school anatomical disciplines: gross anatomy, histology, embryology, and neuroscience. The curriculum is organized into six modules over three quarters with multiple exams per module. The modules cover broad anatomical themes. Fall quarter begins with the segmented body plan, which includes back dissections and finishes with tubes within tubes, which includes thorax, abdomen and pelvis dissections.

Curriculum delivery is through lectures, laboratory- based dissection workshops, ultrasound workshops, small group activities, and online resources. Student progress is evaluated through written and practical examinations.
