ZOOL 3100 - Advanced Human Anatomy
Typically Taught Fall Semester: Full Sem
Typically Taught Spring Semester: Full Sem
The purpose of this course is to further expose and train students in human cadaver dissection and the teaching of human cadaver anatomy. In so doing, we will (1) provide a uniform laboratory experience for Zoology 2100 (Human Anatomy), (2) teach these advanced students what and how to mentor their junior colleagues in teaching the human anatomy laboratories, (3) provide these advanced students with the opportunity to teach both the 2100 students and other student instructors, thus further improving their public speaking, (4) place these advanced students in a more senior leadership position among their lab instructor peers, and (5) further reinforce the knowledge base of the students (the power of knowing something by teaching something).
Due to the complex and pedagogical nature, this course can be taken up to 4 times. Each semester, the focus of the lecture portion of this course will vary from: histological anatomy, developmental anatomy, evolution and pathological/clinically-relevant anatomy. In addition, the prosection assignments each repeated semester will increase in complexity, difficulty and leadership demand. The student instructor experience is maximized by their ability to repeat this unique course by allowing them to capitalize on and improve their past efforts in both the teaching environment and prosection assignment.
Pre-requisite(s): Successful completion of ZOOL 2100 with a grade of B+ or higher, successful completion of ZOOL 3099 , completion of interview process, and instructor approval.
Number of Times this Course May Be Repeated: May be repeated up to four times with a maximum of 12 credit hours.
