Hello and welcome to the spring semester of human anatomy! This is a very intensive course is designed to immerse you fully in the structure and function of the human body. Let me be honest - it won't be easy!! But I promise that you will thoroughly enjoy your time in this course. I hope to make the material interesting, informative and fun. To find the lecture notes, click on the provided links. These notes will require you to go to lecture and add your own personal touch. To download, save the file to your own computer rather than trying to open it directly from the site. This will save time. These files are lengthy and big - so print them out using the multiple handout function of Powerpoint under the Print page.
This course also requires 1 hour per week arranged time in the Learning Resource Center (LRC). The time spent there is not critical for you to receive a grade in this course but will definitely improve it. Therefore while I do not enforce this time strictly, I strongly recommend you make the LRC a habit! Check with the LRC for their times - they are limited and not very flexible. The LRC has an abundance of CD-ROM material that will help to demonstrate the concepts taught in lecture/lab. It also has several of the models we will use this semester. Be sure to sign IN and OUT to make sure you get credit for your time. WARNING - the keys associated with the models are often not very accurate - so you them at your own peril!!!!
For each practical exam, I post review lists for you to assess what you need to know. These lists are NOT complete and I may test on material that is not listed - however this should be a small percentage of the tested material.. Therefore - you must come to lecture/lab and read your text in order to know exactly what is expected of you.
Welcome and good luck!

To get a copy of some of the keys I have created for your models - click on the links below. This is my best guess as to what the models are attempting to show - some names may be different depending on textbook. Keys for the muscle models are located in my key book. Keys for the newer models should be with the model.
