ANAT 100, Anatomy of the Human Body, is a web-based course suitable for students at all levels of post-secondary education with an interest in Human Anatomy. This foundational anatomy course is designed to introduce basic structure and functional relationships of the human body. The course entails the basic building blocks of the human body at the gross and microscopic levels. Through a series of learning modules that will include readings, group learning activities, assignments, inquiry, and a practicum that involves an interactive study using a virtual cadaver and Queen’s online database of organs and tissues, students will discover and understand the functioning of various body systems. Body organ systems covered in this course will include the skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, urinary and reproductive systems. Each module of this course will focus on a system, and recognizing that for the beginning anatomist there is a lot of information to assimilate, the topics are structured from the simple to the complex.


Note: The Blended offering of this course is restricted to students registered in the Bachelor of Health Sciences program.
