MED 530 - Basic Structural Foundations

5 credit hours

This course serves to introduce first year osteopathic medical students to the fundamental organization and structure of the human body using a variety of instructional resources (e.g., cadaveric specimens, anatomical software, and virtual anatomy laboratory). Both microscopic (histology) and macroscopic (gross) anatomy will be covered, with an emphasis on the foundational musculoskeletal-, vascular, and neuro-anatomy required for Medical Skills I and Osteopathic Principles & Practice I courses. In addition, imaging techniques including CT scans, MRI, and x-ray radiography will be used to introduce the student to the physician’s perspective of the structure of the human body.
