BMS 430
Gross Anatomy & Pathology [Lecture and Laboratory]

Students in this course will examine the structures of the human body, learn how those structures contribute to the basic functions of the organ systems, and become familiar with common diseases of each system, that will form the basic foundation for an education in the healthsciences. The class will use a biweekly lecture and discussion format, and histological examinations, to introduce the cell types, the tissues they comprise, and the organs and organ systems of the body and will proceed using cadaver dissection guided by simulation software to explore the structures of the body by region. The cadaver investigation will start with the skin, muscles and nerves of the back, and progress to shoulder, arm, knee, hip, and leg, the muscles of the thorax, followed by the organs and structures of the abdominopelvic and thoracic cavities. Prerequisites : BIO 112; CHM 211 (course fee applicable)
