Course: MD 554 - Human Structure & Function

Students in this course study the composition of the human body and how it performs in the healthy state in an integrated study of microscopic and gross anatomy, physiology, basic imaging principles, embryology and clinical skills. Although the emphasis is on normal healthy structure and function, representative examples of pathology and clinical applications sharpen the contrast between normal and abnormal. The course includes traditional pedagogical methods with innovative and unique computer based lessons and small group learning. (12 weeks)
