An introductory course designed to provide the student with an understanding of the microscopic anatomy of the human body. Functional topics and embryological development are integrated with histology in the lectures. The course is roughly divided into thirds. The first third of the course is devoted to the study of cell biology and the organization of basic tissues. The second portion deals with histology of selected systems. The final third is concerned with detailed development and histology of the oral cavity and teeth. Lectures are supplemented with photographic slides to enhance the students’ appreciation of microscopic anatomy.
