COURSE DIRECTOR: Robert T. Binhammer, Ph.D.
COURSE DESCRIPTION: The organization of the human body and the way in which anatomical relationships serve as a basis for function are studied in this course. The medical aspects of the structural and functional organization of the human body are also a focus of attention. The course will consist of daily team based learning exercises and supervised laboratory dissection from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. The major learning experience occurs in the laboratory where teaching consists of small group discussions.
TEXT: Students are strongly urged to bring any appropriate gross anatomy text with them. The student should be familiar with this text to facilitate understanding of materials already studied.
DISSECTION GUIDE: A copy of the dissection guide used at the University of Nebraska Medical Center will be furnished to the student and is available on computers at every dissection table in an online form with links to images from the Netter Atlas.
LAB SUPPLIES: As part of the fee, we supply the dissection guide, dissection tools and rubber gloves. Used scrub suits are available without cost.
EXAMINATIONS: Examinations over the didactic components of this course will be given as multiple choice questions in the format of the USMLE. The examinations over the practical components of the course consist of identification of structure, radiographic anatomy, osteology, and functional implications of material covered in the gross anatomy laboratories.
