ANAT 100 - GROSS & DEVELOPMENTAL ANATOMY

[203 Hours]
This course consists of lectures and a laboratory where students dissect an entire embalmed cadaver. The objectives of this course are to provide the first year medical students the opportunity to learn the foundations of medicine and to introduce them to aspects of professionalism. The students learn the basic concepts of anatomy and the clinical applications of such concepts. Didactic lectures and the dissection of a cadaver are supplemented by clinical correlations and hands on exercises conducted by clinicians in different specialties. A radiologist from the community gives lectures on imaging of the different areas of the body. A physician-surgeon who is a member of our teaching staff presents a talks on important clinical issues related to the areas of dissection. Each student has the opportunity to perform emergency procedures such as lumbar puncture, oral intubation, insertion of thoracostomy tubes and urethral catheterization in Cadaver Procedure Labs. A significant part of this course is designed to emphasize the clinical importance of the anatomy students are learning. .
