COURSE TITLE: Human Anatomy
NAME OF INSTRUCTOR: Dr Annerieke Wolmarans
CREDIT WEIGHT AND WEEKLY TIME DISTRIBUTION: credits 3(hrs lect 3 - hrs sem 0 - hrs lab 3)
COURSE DESCRIPTION: This introductory survey course of general human morphology is designed to provide students with a systematic description of the anatomical structures of the human body. This includes gross and microscopic anatomy of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, endocrine, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems. Labs include various dissections and in-depth examination of the musculoskeletal system with specific attention to the upper and lower extremities, articulations, and surface anatomy. Critical thinking and appreciation for health and disease from a gross anatomical perspective are emphasized.

Same as KINS 207.

Prerequisites: Biology 30 or Science 30 (Students who intend to use Science 30 as a prerequisite must consult with and have the consent of the instructor)
