Modern Human Anatomy (ANAT)

ANAT 6111 -  Human Gross Anatomy  (8 Credits)  

The Human Gross Anatomy course examines the form and function of the human body at a macroscopic level. Systems-based and regional anatomy lectures are complemented by full-body cadaver dissection. Medical imaging labs provide the opportunity to learn ultrasound skills. Requirements: Must be a degree-seeking student in MS Modern Human Anatomy program.

Grading Basis: Letter Grade

Typically Offered: Spring.

ANAT 6205 -  Imaging and Modeling  (4 Credits)  

This course covers major medical and scientific imaging modalities with an emphasis on 3D scientific and medical visualization. Students will also receive instruction in advanced digital image processing and 3D modeling using industry-standard software such as MATLAB and Maya. Prerequisite: Only ANAT degree-seeking students

Grading Basis: Letter Grade

A-GRAD Restricted to graduate students only.

Typically Offered: Fall.

ANAT 6260 -  3D Scanning and Printing for the Anatomical Sciences  (1 Credit)  

Introduction to the applications and technical “hands on” details of the procedures involved in 3D printing for the anatomical sciences and education. Students will learn approaches to acquiring and processing 3D imaging data along with strategies for printing and finishing objects using fused-deposition modeling and stereolithography. ANAT 6205: Imaging & Modeling

Grading Basis: Letter Grade

Typically Offered: Fall, Spring.

ANAT 6310 -  Neuroanatomy  (4 Credits)  

Structure & Function in the Human Nervous System. Basic neuroanatomy & neural systems with workshop focus employing facilitated discussions & problem-oriented cases. Laboratory sessions will employ brain specimens, models & image sets. Team-based projects are in-depth exploration of topics with development of collaborative presentations. Requisite: Restricted to ANAT students only.

Grading Basis: Letter Grade

Typically Offered: Fall.

ANAT 6321 -  Human Histology  (4 Credits)  

Histology is the study of the tissues. By exploring the human structure, function and organization at the histological level, students will gain important pattern recognition skills to integrate microscopic knowledge with macroscopic gross anatomy and other foundational anatomical sciences. (Will replace ANAT 6320) Prereq: Restricted to ANAT students only.

Grading Basis: Letter Grade

A-GRAD Restricted to graduate students only.

Typically Offered: Fall.

ANAT 6330 -  Human Embryology  (3 Credits)  

This graduate level, introductory human embryology course will emphasize developmental aspects of adult anatomy and congenital malformations. Educational value of three-or-four-dimensional models and other ancillary learning resources for human embryology will also be explored. Requisite: Restricted to ANAT students only.

Grading Basis: Letter Grade

A-GRAD Restricted to graduate students only.

Typically Offered: Spring.

ANAT 6412 -  Foundations of Teaching  (1 Credit)  

This course will provide students with training, practice, and constructive feedback in effective teaching skills in order to be successful in the biomedical professions.
