Primary Instructor:

MEDADM 403 is organized around eight major informational blocks, each of which covers the major anatomical systems, their structure, and functioning. The coverage within each block follows a general sequence of embryology, gross anatomy, and histology. In addition, the anatomy presented in this course draws heavily on how the various cells, tissues, organs, and systems function. Every attempt will be made to build current hypotheses and understandings of structure and function on a base of our classical understandings of the human body before and after birth.

There will be three major examinations in the course---two interim examinations and a final examination. Final grades will be based on the collective performances on each of your three major examinations and quizzes. Computer-scored examinations may include a combination of simple multiple-choice and true/false formats, and generally consist of one hundred items each. Each of the two interim examinations is scheduled after one or several topic units are completed.
