    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you are going into the medical field, this class is mandatory. I have never before been in a class that went into such detail of the human body. The homework is difficult and you have to put in a great deal of extra hours of study but it is so rewarding in the end. I know have to ability to look at the human body and see what lies beneath the skin. There is a lot of hands on learning studying the cadavers, models, and performing dissections. This class is not for the faint of heart but it is very rewarding in the end. I came away with entire new respect for the human body.

    Course highlights:

    To be honest, one of the best highlights of this course was working with the cadavers. Everyone in my class was amazed at how incredibly helpful it was to work hands on with the cadavers. We were able to study in detail the veins, arteries, and nerves that flow throughout the body. We came away from the class with the ability to look at someone and point out specifically where a muscle or bone is located. The brain dissection was another highlight. We dissected sheep brains which in makeup are similar to human brains. It was fascinating learning about how different areas of the brain control sensations, emotions, and bodily functions. I came away from the class with a wider spectrum of knowledge then I could have imagined.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You certainly need to be willing to put in the effort and time. I spent many extra hours at the lab studying and making notes. I found flashcards to be a massive help. It is best if you can find someone to quiz you with your own flashcards. I also discovered that printing off pictures of the microscope slides of different tissues and then pasting them onto flashcards with notes to be immensely helpful.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I enjoyed this course in the content and the lectures were very interesting. However, if you want to ace this course, skip all the lectures and memorize the textbook. The amount of information given at the level of understanding required as a prerequisite makes this class impossible. This class is more difficult than many of my upper levels and unnecessarily so.

    Course highlights:

    I loved the anatomy lab and Professor Bolke is a sincere and kind professor. He is an excellent resource for information and is always available in his office hours. In this class, I learned how to ask for help.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Study the textbook over anything else. Use online resources and ask for help!
