Home /  Courses And Programs / Human Anatomy with Lab

Human Anatomy learning is similar to learning a new language. There are (quite literally) hundreds, actually thousands, of new words introduced throughout this course. Upon gaining a basic understanding of the “lingo” of the body, one can guide themselves through the depths of the human body to better understand its organization, structures, and functions. At first this “new language” can seem somewhat overwhelming, but students soon realize that after grasping the basics and the roots of words (etymology), one begins to find similarities and can easily navigate anatomy manuals. Furthermore, a core component of the learning is to appreciate the different planes of the body, direction, and terms relating to motion (you may have heard of some of these, e.g. anterior/posterior, flexion/extension, superficial/deep, abduction/adduction, and others). Once students appreciate these terms, navigating lab instructions and dissection also becomes easier and students can become quite facile in their dissection techniques in a very short time!
