When you study Anatomy I and II at National University of Health
Sciences, you'll work with pre-dissected cadavers
in the graduate level gross anatomy
Bachelor of science students who are enrolled in anatomy
courses spend two hours each week in the lab. During that
time, they examine multiple cadavers to observe structures that
they are discussing in classroom lectures. Seeing multiple cadavers
also gives them a chance to observe differences between one body
The instructor and an assistant are on hand to help students
work with the cadavers, and are available to answer
questions. In addition, the lab is equipped with a smart
board, camera and digital monitors, so the instructor can share a
cadaver observation with the entire class.
Most other undergraduate anatomy programs combine the study of
anatomy with physiology in a standard "A&P" course. Some
schools may offer only one course in anatomy that covers the entire
body. National University is unique in that it offers not only one,
but two highly detailed courses in anatomy: Anatomy l, covering the
musculoskeletal systems, muscles, bones, nerves, blood vessels, and
skin; Anatomy II covering the chest and abdomen, lungs, heart,
gastro-intestinal tract, and reproductive system.
"The human anatomy lab is one of the reasons I moved here from
Canada to finish my bachelor's degree at NUHS," says Reza Danesh,
who is working toward a career as a DO or MD in the future.
Studying anatomy in a cadaver lab provides a much deeper level
of detail than most community or four-year colleges. The National
University format provides much better preparation for students who
are preparing for medical school and professional health degree
When you visit campus at NUHS, you can ask for a tour of our
anatomy lab. And, if you visit NUHS before the end of August,
you'll receive a double tuition incentive during our
"Summer Soak Up." You will earn $500 toward your first
trimester in our bachelor of biomedical science program. Call
