513 Human Embryology

COURSE DIRECTOR: Sarah Keim-Janssen, Ph.D.

COURSE DESCRIPTION:  This course will provide a review of medical embryology in a lecture format that follows the material used in our medical student and allied health courses.

EXAMINATIONS:  A midterm and final examination over the didactic component of this course will be given as multiple choice questions in the format of the USMLE.

SUGGESTED TEXTS:  Students should bring the textbook used at their primary institution.  Some examples of texts we recommend include: The Developing Human by Keith L. Moore and T.V.N. Persaud; Human Embryology by William J. Larsen; and Langman’s Medical Embryology by T.W. Sadler. Students are expected to read sections which parallel the topics covered in the lectures.
