ANAT 529. Gross Anatomy and Embryology. 10.5 Units.

Provides the morphological foundation upon which clinical knowledge and experiences are built. Supports the organ-system curriculum in the freshman year. Approaches anatomy from gross structural and embryological perspectives. Provides students with the knowledge necessary to recognize clinical variations and abnormalities during their medical careers. Cross-listing: ANAT 510.

ANAT 541. Gross Anatomy GS. 7 Units.

Anatomy of the head, neck, locomotor system, thorax, abdomen, pelvis, and perineum. Correlated with radiology, applied features, and embryological development. Summer and Autumn quarters.
