AP 210 - Cadaver Anatomy

Credits: 1
Comprehensive review of human cadaver anatomy for health professionals and students of the health professions. Covers major muscles, skin, bones and joints, internal organs, blood vessels, the brain, spinal cord and major nerves. Uses dissected cadavers to study anatomical variations, pathologies, and anatomical change due to the aging process.

Enrollment Requirement: Concurrent enrollment in AP 104  or BIOL& 242 ; and eligible for ENGL& 101 ; or instructor consent.

Satisfies Requirement: Natural Science

Course Outcomes:
Students who successfully complete this class will be able to:

  1. Describe superficial and deep anatomical relations of major organs and organ systems.
  2. Describe normal anatomical variations among individuals and describe anatomical changes which occur as a part of aging or disease processes.
  3. Participate in discussion, palpation, observation and comparison of multiple dissections, and be able to link the anatomy to specific anatomical systems and system functions.

Program Outcomes
  1. Demonstrate knowledge of and a willingness to accept stated/agreed upon expectations, policies, and procedures through lectures/discussions, appropriate attitudes and behaviors in the classroom and lab.
  2. Provide reasons for the conclusions they reach or accept and assess the relevance and adequacy of those reasons through lectures/discussions, analysis of dissection material.

College-wide Outcomes
  • Critical Thinking - Critical thinking finds expression in all disciplines and everyday life. It is characterized by an ability to reflect upon thinking patterns, including the role of emotions on thoughts, and to rigorously assess the quality of thought through its work products. Critical thinkers routinely evaluate thinking processes and alter them, as necessary, to facilitate an improvement in their thinking and potentially foster certain dispositions or intellectual traits over time.
  • Responsibility - Responsibility encompasses those behaviors and dispositions necessary for students to be effective members of a community. This outcome is designed to help students recognize the value of a commitment to those responsibilities which will enable them to work successfully individually and with others.
