Anatomy Blended Workshop

July 27, 28 & 29th
Afternoon Workshop
Time: 1:00pm-5:00pm

Details: This workshop is structured to introduce the basic concepts of anatomy, and is designed for incoming students with little or no previous cadaver-based anatomical experiences. Students will participate in discussions with faculty and former anatomy students on the “best approach” to study anatomy, learn anatomical terminology, and experience a sample exam that models the presentation of difficult anatomical concepts. Students will begin to discover the organ systems through the study of skeletal material and previously dissected human organs, and whole cadavers. The workshop will include time in the gross anatomy laboratory studying human cadavers, and will emphasize laboratory safety as well as lab study strategies.

Morning Workshop
Time: 8:00am- Noon

It facilitates students to study how our systems are integrated to regulate homeostasis under physiological states. Students are expected to understand basic concepts and terminologies of cardiovascular function, respiratory physiology, renal function, digestive physiology, and skeletal muscle physiology, and neuro-humoral control of functions of those systems.
