The course is designed for incoming medical, veterinary, and masters stuents who wish to start learning Gross Anatomy prior to the start of their program. Course material will be presented through small group discussions and time in the LMU-DCOM anatomy lab. There will be a heavy emphasis on the clinical aspects of anatomy so that the student can equate various physical signs and symptoms with anatomical pathology. Students will begin each day at 8:30 a.m. with a test over the previous day's material. Each test is cumulative to encourage long-term mastery of anatomy. There will also be heavy emphasis on the most efficient ways to study anatomy and other related medical disciplines.
