An in-depth introduction to human gross anatomy with cadaveric dissection. The structural organization of the human body, including its regional and systems-related functions. The relationship between normal human anatomical variation in structure and function and how disease and/or injury affect these relationships. Permission of the instructor required prior to enrollment.
1. Describe the structure and function of the musculoskeletal system in relation to its importance in the limbs, thorax, abdomen, and pelvis. 2. Discuss the regional organization, structure, and function of the major organ systems in the thorax (Respiratory and Cardiovascular Systems), abdomen (Digestive System), and pelvis & perineum (Urinary and Reproductive Systems). 3. Describe the structural organization of the head and neck and the distribution and function of the various cranial nerves. 4. Identify major anatomical structures in the human body using cadaveric specimens, radiographs, ultrasound, CT, MRI images. 5. Illustrate clinical correlates associated with the major systems of the human body.
Uploaded a Course Syllabus
Currently, no graduate level anatomy course WITH gross dissection is offered at GW. The closest course, ANAT 6181, is a graduate course for a specialized subset of graduate students (GCATS or Graduate Certificate in Anatomical & Translational Sciences) that does not include dissection. This course will be targeted specifically for Ph.D. level students.
