Human Biology - Advanced Anatomy II Outline

An advanced anatomy course developed for people wishing to develop a career in health and human sciences, paramedical jobs and alternative therapists, specially massage therapists and other health care professions working in close contact with the patients body.

This course assumes a basic understanding of anatomy


Lesson Structure

There are 7 lessons in this course:

  1. Cytology
  2. Surface Anatomy
  3. Systemic Anatomy I
  4. Systemic Anatomy II
  5. Regional Anatomy I
  6. Regional Anatomy II
  7. Radiographic and Diagnostic Anatomy

Each lesson culminates in an assignment which is submitted to the school, marked by the school's tutors and returned to you with any relevant suggestions, comments, and if necessary, extra reading.


Aims

  • Describe and understand the microscopic anatomical features of human cells
