Human Anatomy Lab Manual, revised Aug 2017, Montgomery



This course presents basic concepts of anatomy at the microscopic and gross level. The morphology and location of anatomic structures is analyzed to understand how the structure relates to function. Laboratory work includes examination of microscopic sections, mammalian dissections, and modeling.


At the end of the semester, you are expected to be able to:

  • understand and use common anatomical terminology
  • identify anatomical structures using illustrations, relative position in the body, morphology, and laboratory specimens
  • describe the relationships between anatomical structures and their functions at the tissue, organ, and system levels
  • use a variety of learning techniques and demonstrate good study skills
  • follow detailed written instructions for lab identifications and exercises
  • work as part of a team in the laboratory
  • demonstrate critical thinking with some applications to clinical situations, disease processes and current news reports

I hope, as we move through this course together, that you will be awed by the magnificent design of your body.
