Curriculum

Human Architecture

SMD 8580

Module Director: Gary Nieder, Ph.D., Neuroscience, Cell Biology, & Physiology

Module Description: The Human Architecture module will serve as an introduction to the language and concepts of human anatomy, imaging and embryology. After a survey of the overall organization of the body, students will carry out a detailed dissection of the thorax, which will prepare them for the Staying Alive module.  Embryonic development through formation of the body plan, as well as cardiovascular and respiratory system development will be included. The module also places an emphasis on clinical imaging. Students will gain an understanding of imaging concepts and practice using imaging for clinical problem solving.
