Course # and Name: Anat 1
Contributing faculty members: Jennifer Lange, Patricia Wu, James Ruggiero, Michael Fonda,
Meili Xu
Catalog Description: Structure and function of the human body with emphasis on microscopic
and gross anatomy. Microscopic examination of normal and pathological tissues, and dissection,
supplemented by use of charts, models, and computer assisted instruction.
Course Learning Outcomes:
Students who complete this course should be able to:
1. Students will demonstrate competency with standard equipment and techniques of the
biological sciences.
2. Students will express their understanding of major anatomical concepts by verbal, written
and illustrative means using correct terminology.
3. Students will identify observed microscopic and macroscopic structures.
4. Students will apply biological principles to healthful vs. pathological conditions.
