Structure of organ systems at the gross, subgross, and microscopic levels based on human material and dissection of the cat.


2. Course Outline Information

In courses that include lecture and laboratory, the topical outlines should be separate and distinct, each specific and appropriate to the activities to be conducted.

a. Lecture Topical Outline:

(The lecture topical outline should provide a detailed record of the content of the course.)

- Peripheral nervous system
- Digestive system
- Circulatory system
- Respiratory and urinary systems

3. Course Measurable Objectives:

(Measurable course objectives should identify expected outcomes: specific, observable student actions – what the student should be able to do, know or feel as a result of taking this course.  A majority of objectives should reflect critical thinking, i.e. application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.  Course objectives should relate directly to methods of evaluation)

Provide a minimum of five (5) course measurable objectives:

1. Recognize and describe the fundamental classes of tissues and distinguish between tissue types within each class.
2. Describe the structure of organs at the histological level.
3. Locate and describe the major organs of the mammalian body.
4. Review the organization of each organ system and describe and define its components.
5. Sequence pathways of movement and flow in such organ systems as circulatory, nervous, reproductive, digestive, and respiratory systems.
6. Identify bone markings and their normal variations on human specimens.
7. Demonstrate accurate dissection technique and identification of important muscles, viscera, blood vessels, and nerves in the cat, and structures of the sheep brain, eye, and heart.

4. Course Methods of Evaluation:

(Methods of evaluation should relate directly to measurable course objectives.  They indicate the kind of assignments or performance activities designed for a course to assess student learning.  Each course must list either substantial writing assignments (category 1) OR computational / non-computational problem solving demonstrations (category 2) if writing assignments are inappropriate (with an explanation of why substantial writing is not appropriate for the course).  Activities typically assigned in categories 3 and 4 must also be listed in this section.)

Category 1. Substantial written assignments for this course include:


If the course is degree applicable, substantial written assignments in this course are inappropriate because:

Anatomy 35 involves the identification of anatomical structures and does not lend itself to written assignments. Other methods of assessment, like laboratory practica, diagrams, workbooks, and tissue identification under the microscope are more appropriate to this subject. This course is also a skills based course. Students learn the skills of dissection as a means to identify the different anatomical structures. The students demonstrate their ability to dissect throughout the course and are evaluated as an assessment in the course as well.

Category 2. Computational or non-computational problem solving demonstrations:

None

Category 3. Skills Demonstrations:

Dissection techniques
Microscope techniques: knowing the parts of the microscope, setting up a slide on the microscope for viewing, focusing techniques (starting with low magnification and then increasing magnification), scanning slides for structure identification, use of the oil immersion lens, cleaning oil from the microscope, and proper storage of the microscope

Category 4. Objective Examinations:

Multiple choice questions using anatomical terminology
Short answer questions on the anatomical organization of the body systems
Short answer questions on circuits of blood flow in the cardiovascular system
Medical case study questions that may be 1-2 paragraphs in length.
Matching questions pairing skeletal muscles with their appropriate origin, insertion, or principle action
Diagramming questions illustrating the anatomy of tissues and organs
Laboratory practical exams identifying anatomical structures


5. Sample Assignments:

(Assignments should be directly related to the objectives of the course.  They should be specific enough to provide real guidance to faculty and clear expectations for students.  Descriptions of the type or examples of assignments are required.  For example, rather than “term paper” state “term paper comparing and contrasting the social aspects of hunting tactics of two mammal species.”  This section must establish that the work is demanding enough in rigor and independence to fulfill the credit level specified.  The nature of the assignments must clearly demand critical thinking.  Assignments should be adequate to assure that students who successfully complete them can meet the objectives of the course.  Appropriate out-of-class work is required for credit courses.)

Provide a minimum of three (3) sample assignments:

1. Given an example case study with specific information from an x-ray on an injured individual with loss of muscle function, evaluate the changes in muscle and skeletal anatomy by answering five problem solving questions in essay form of at least one paragraph in length.
2. Identify bone markings and their normal variations on a given set of human specimens.
3. Perform a dissection according to instructions to locate and identify specific skeletal muscles, internal organs, blood vessels, and nerves in the cat.
