Human Anatomy


This course is an introduction to human anatomy, focusing on the structure and function of body organs and systems, as well as their interactions. Nutrition, metabolism, and growth and development are some of the other topics that will be covered.


Organ systems will be studied, and a balance between gross anatomical study and histology will be used. Working with human skeletal collections and dissecting cadavers and preserved specimens will be part of the laboratory study. In order to aid understanding, students will be introduced to anatomic terminology. This course will teach you how to understand the features of different organ systems in relation to the human body’s form and function by using a systems approach and a large library of multimedia materials.


The basic building blocks of the human body at the gross and microscopic levels are covered in this course. Each module of this course will focus on a system, and because there is a lot of information to absorb for a beginner anatomist, the topics are organized from simple to complex.

Course content

Who this course is for

Students must have completed a college biology course with a grade of C or higher and possess a current understanding of cell and tissue structure and function.


Anatomy is not a first-year biology course and is an essential component of any healthcare profession, as well as many other biological disciplines. Students with an interest in human anatomy at all levels of post-secondary education will benefit from this course.


The students who are most in need of this course are:


  • Life Science Students.
  • Nursing Students.
  • Physical Therapy Students.
  • Pharmacy Students.
  • Occupational Therapy Students.
  • Medical School Students.
  • Veterinary Students.
  • Dentistry Students.
  • Chiropractic Students.
  • Optometry Students, etc.

Learning outcomes

At the end of this course, you should be able to:


  • Demonstrate the ability to collaborate and work effectively, as well as the ability to apply appropriate anatomical terms and concepts for the purposes of identifying, communicating effectively, and critically reading relevant literature.
  • Analyze the gross (macroscopic) and histology (microscopic) anatomy of the tissues and organs, as well as the structure and function of various human organs and systems.
  • Recognize anatomical structures and predict the physiological functions of body systems, use a systematic logical thinking process.
  • Explain the interplay between histology and gross anatomy in terms of structure and function, and be able to apply this knowledge to various aspects of development and function.

Unforeseen circumstances

If the course has to be cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, we’ll endeavor to give you as much notice as possible and you’ll receive a full refund for the course cost.


You’ll receive a certificate at the end of your course.
