This course administered over three consecutive semesters, is designed to start with basic structure and increase in depth with horizontal integration with physiology, and the advancement to cover the clinical application of anatomical principles to health and disease states. The modules are designed to focus on concepts and details of human anatomy and anatomical terminologies and acquaint students with the structures of the locomotive apparatus: the skeletal and muscular systems as well as the structures of the human body in relation to normal and abnormal processes of pregnancy, defects in fetal development and the external factors that interfere with the basic mechanisms of tissue morphogenesis are discussed. The additional focus of this module is on the structure and function of the cells and tissues of the human body. Students will be introduced to histological techniques essential in the identification and characterization of cells and tissues, normal histological characteristics of cells, tissues, and organs of the nervous, endocrine, and reproductive systems, and reviews the pathological changes that manifest in disease situations. Cell models, and where appropriate cadavers tissue histological slides, and electronic photomicrographs will be used and examined using the optic microscope.
