The anatomy course fulfills a general education science requirement and serves as a gateway course to the nursing program. This course is a survey of the gross anatomy and histology of the major human organ systems including the skeletal and muscle systems, the digestive, circulatory, respiratory, excretory, nervous,
endocrine and reproductive systems. Laboratory work includes observation of models, and of human organs and tissues. A human cadaver is used for demonstration of musculature and digestive, respiratory, circulatory, and urogenital systems.
