This class was tough.
This course was amazing! Dr. Dell is enthusiastic about the materials and cares for her students. She wants everyone to succeed, but doesn't give away grades. She teaches critical thinking skills by providing a strong base of knowledge and testing on hypothetical situations. Students must answer new questions using the information they have studied in timed, blue book exams. It is a truly challenging and memorable way to learn.
The most interesting and memorable part of the course was the human cadaver dissection. We learned to recognize variations in human anatomy, and had a chance to determine cause of death of an actual human patient. The rush of discovering previous surgeries, pathologies, and anatomical variations was something completely new and unforgettable.

Advice for students:
Be prepared to put in the work, and be even more prepared to be truly rewarded with what you get out of it. This class involves human cadaver dissection, and is hands on. Dr. Dell is an amazing professor. She has many previous students who are very successful. They would come and give very interesting presentations. The field trip we took to see a presentation from her student who became a forensic anthropologist was my favorite. If you want to go into the health professions, anthropology, or just love biological sciences, this class is a must!
