HS 402: Anatomy

Course Description This course is designed for the physical therapy curriculum as an introduction to the structure and function of the human body and is a prerequisite for most of the other courses. The entire human body is covered in lecture. The cardiopulmonary, neuromuscular and integumentary systems are studied as they relate to their anatomic structures. Palpation laboratories introduce the student to the practical application of surface anatomy. At the Bay Shore campus, the laboratory involves cadaver dissection and prosection. The initial presentations are systemic. Basic anatomic terminology, osteology, arthrology, angiology and neurology are covered to provide a background for the subsequent regional lectures.
