Anatomy 1

I am teaching Anatomy 1, Spring Semester, 2014. Please note that I will be out of the country until January 19, and will be unable to update this website until I return. Likewise, Blackboard will not be available until the beginning of the semester.

 

Welcome to Anatomy 1. You can hardly listen to the news or read a newspaper without seeing a reference to anatomy. Breast cancer, ruptured disk, torn ACL, heart attack, and on and on. Since most students in this class plan on a nursing career, I try to tailor the information to match. If you don't remain in the medical profession, you will use your knowledge of anatomy for the rest of your life.

Anatomy is a difficult class. There is a lot of memorizing, a lot of new vocabulary. I often think of this class as a vocabulary class!

According to common guidelines, it is recommended that students should spend two hours/unit/week study time. Anatomy will require at least that. We have many learning aids available, and you should be able to develop a plan to best utilize your study time so that you can excel.

This website is updated frequently with assignments and schedule changes; check frequently for new information. Above all, you are encouraged to review and/or print the PowerPoint lectures and bring them to class for notetaking.
