BIO 691 Advanced Human Anatomy

This immersive and intensive course reviews and discusses advanced, integrated concepts in human anatomy and physiology. First, this course reviews the anatomical language necessary for clinical communications. The course discusses the embryonic development, microanatomy (histology), anatomical organization, and physiological function of selected organ systems. Essential anatomical and physiological concepts will be investigated by human cadaver prosections and other experimental approaches within the human anatomy and physiology laboratory. Finally, a capstone project on an instructor-approved anatomical or physiological disorder will be completed in the format of a presentation to the class. Students completing this course will gain a deeper understanding of human anatomy and physiology and identify useful classroom education resources to apply this knowledge in their classrooms as educators.  

NoteThe majority of the class will take place June 26th-June 30th on ISU’s Terre Haute campus. Students will need to complete several lab safety modules online in June before the start of the class as well as some reading. Classes will be split between morning and afternoon sessions with evenings set aside for course prep and other activities starting on Monday, June 26th. ISU will provide parking passes, room, and board starting on Sunday evening (June 25th) with participants departing after the last session on Friday afternoon (June 30th).
