Clinical Anatomy and Embryology I

Clinical Anatomy and Embryology I (7 credits)

This course is designed for the osteopathic medical curriculum as an introduction to the structure and function of the human body throughout the lifespan. Our main goal in building this course is based on the firm belief that Clinical Anatomy is the cornerstone for medical practice and in physical diagnoses. Our course incorporates problem based learning which tends to develop clinical reasoning in students in their infancy.

This course is the foundation for other courses. The initial lectures are given in a systemic format which allows for transition into regional anatomy. The systemic lectures will cover basic anatomic terminology, osteology, arthrology, angiology and neurology. Lectures in regional Anatomy will follow starting with Back and Limbs.
