Semester Units

(Quarter)

Human Anatomy with a Lab*

Needs to have a human cadaver associated with the course. If your human anatomy course did not have a lab or a lab with a human cadaver associated with it, consider locating a lab in your area and taking just the 1-unit lab. If you are having difficulty finding a Human Anatomy Lab that has a Human Cadaver Associated with the course, consider asking the Human Anatomy Professors in your area for suggestions as to how you might gain the 6+ hours of human cadaver experience/observation. Stanford University offers a 6-hour cadaver tutorial that is open to you. Contact their Clinical Anatomy department for more information.
