BIOL 440

Advanced Human Anatomy


Integrated lecture and laboratory course designed to provide students with a detailed understanding of the structure of the human body. Cadaver dissection will reinforce three-dimensional relationships discussed in lecture and each of the main organ systems will be considered using a regional approach to the body. Prerequisite: BIOL 152 or equivalent; BIOL 240, BIOL 241, or BIOL 242; and instructor consent.


At KU we are fortunate to be able to offer a human cadaver lab experience.  We maintain six cadavers in the lab, two of which are being actively dissected each semester.
