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.
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.
If you don't remain in the medical profession, you will use your knowledge
of anatomy for the rest of your life.
