Anatomy will be studied from two perspectives: Regional anatomy, where body divisions and their anatomical relations are studied, will be addressed in the anatomy laboratory during the residential portion of the course. Systemic anatomy, in which each organ system is studied as a functional unit, will be addressed during the non-residential portion of the course.
