ANA 601 Human Gross Anatomy, Embryology and Imaging

Course Description: The Human Gross Anatomy, Embryology & Imaging course consists of a detailed study of the normal structure, development and organization of the human body. This course undertakes a regional approach rather than a systemic approach to Human Gross Anatomy, Embryology & Imaging is distributed into three block contents. Gross structures are studied in the laboratory by specimen dissection and demonstration. The radiology component of Gross Anatomy serves as the introduction to radiology and prepares the student for further development. Lectures stress the contribution of developmental events to gross anatomical organization and the correlation of this organization with clinically relevant conditions.

General Objectives:

  1. To facilitate students’ acquisition of knowledge and understanding of normal structure and function of the human body as the basis of medical practice.

  2. To provide students a visual and three-dimensional knowledge and understanding of the human body through the experience of dissection, prosection and models.

  3. To utilize clinical correlations to enhance the basic knowledge obtained in Gross Anatomy lectures and laboratory.

  4. To foster and reinforce the study and understanding of the transformation undergone by a fertilized egg into a new individual.

  5. To introduce a variety of non-invasive imaging techniques, such as X-rays, CT, MRI scans, arteriograms, and the interpretation of anatomy as visualized by such techniques.
     

 

ANA 605 Histology and Cell Biology

Course Description: Study of the many different aspects of the internal structure of cells, tissues and organs in the human body, presenting a comprehensive survey of many of their complex interrelationships. Lectures and laboratories sessions.
General Objectives:
1. Describe the structure and function of cells and their various components as well as their products.
2. Describe the four main tissues of the body with an emphasis on how cells specialize to perform specific functions.
3. Describe the different basic structure and function of organ systems, including their components.
 


 

ANA 602 Neuroscience

Course Description: Gross and microscopic anatomy of the human nervous system and its functional correlations in coordination with the Physiology Department. Lectures, clinical correlations, and laboratories sessions.

 

ANA 611 Research Topics in Anatomy

Course Description: The course will deal with the study and review of the new advances in research related to Gross Anatomy, Embryology, Histology, Cell Biology and original ideas in order to obtain knowledge in this field by carrying out the adequate research activities.

 

ANA 673 History of Anatomy

Course Description: Study of a representative chronology of the main anatomical events recorded up to the present time, emphasizing the particular circumstances of the historic epoch and the location where they happened.

 

ANA 671 Teaching Practice

Course Description: The course deals with the appropriate teaching activities to become a teacher in Anatomical Sciences.

 

ANA 661-A Anatomy of the Head and Neck

Course Description: A care dissection of the head and neck to provide the student with a thorough knowledge of that region.

 

ANA 661-C Thorax and Abdomen

Course Description: The student will have the opportunity to study and dissect structures in the thorax and the abdomen.

 

ANA 661-D Pelvis, Perineum, Genitalia

Course Description: A careful dissection of the pelvis, perineum and genitalia to provide the student with a thorough knowledge of that region.

 

ANA 661-B Extremities

Course Description: A thorough dissection of the upper and lower extremities.

 

ANA 623 Cytology

Course Description: The study of the ultrastructure of the cell with the common microscope and its correlation with the electron microscope images. Special emphasis is made to the relation between function and structure, showing the differences in the different organs in internal structure and cellular adaptation.

 

ANA 632 Bibliographical Techniques

Course Description: The course deals with the utilization of bibliographical resources in the search for information in scientific journals, books and computerized data bases.

 

ANA 631 Histotecniques

Course Description: Study of basis and standard histological procedures and some specialized techniques to meet the diverse needs of medical researches. Pre-requisite: Histology, General Biochemistry.

 

ANA 625 Advanced Embryology

Course Description: This course is a complement to the basic embryology course. The practical aspect of embryology will be used to create a tri-dimensional image of the embryo. This will be reinforced by the use of light microscope slides and atlases.

 

ANA 651 Instrumentation

Course Description: : Study of the physical processes of the instrumentation used in the research work of the student. Includes basic optics, electricity and electronics of the instruments.
