This course includes a study of cell biology and the histology of tissue types and organ systems. The first part of the course stresses cellular ultra structure, and function and the four basic tissue types. Laboratory exercises, using both computerized virtual slides and microscope slides, include the identification of cell types, cell organelles, and the basic tissues at the light and electron microscopic levels. The second part of the course deals with the histology and function of the organ systems.
