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
1-800-826-6285 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to
arrange your visit.
National University's bachelor's degree in
biomedical sciences gives you the option to choose an "emphasis
The great part about choosing this emphasis is that
when you graduate, it's reflected on your NUHS diploma. For this
designation, you'll need 19 hours of credit in nutrition courses
There is a growing interest in nutrition, as many people are
learning that they can improve their own health through better food
Richardson of National University agrees that learning more
about nutrition can benefit not only individuals, but anyone
seeking a career in health care. He says, "Most medicine is based
largely on the body's ability to heal itself, but that can only
happen if the patient has the right amount of nutrients."
Whatever type of health professional you plan to be, be it a
chiropractic or naturopathic physician, dentist, an M.D., an
optometrist, or a nurse, a solid knowledge of nutrition will help
you make better diagnoses and provide better care for your

Are you still wondering if a bachelor in biomedical
science degree is the right degree for you? If you are seeking
strong earning potential, it sure is.
Georgetown University issued a report in 2015, which tracks
income data for college graduates from various majors. Some of the
report findings indicate that an undergraduate degree in a health
or science field, such as biomedical sciences, can lead to higher
paying careers, even without a graduate degree.
Here are some of the earnings data found for undergraduate
science and health majors:
Georgetown University also projects 5.6 million jobs in the
healthcare sector by 2020, 82% of which will require a

One of the biggest choices you'll make
is whether to complete your biomedical science degree in an online
program or on a traditional campus. There are many
advantages to a traditional campus, especially in the
biomedical sciences, not the least of which is access to laboratory
However, online classes can give you flexibility in balancing
your degree with real life demands. There may be seasons where your
day job is more demanding, or when family responsibilities require
more of your evening hours. The scheduling flexibility of online
classes gives you more options during these times.
The good news is that National University offers you a
combination of both on-campus and online courses! You can
choose to complete your entire degree completion program on our
university campus, or choose from nine online classes to integrate
some flexibility and convenience into your schedule.
Here what's on the NUHS online menu:
Research Methods and Statistics
Introduction to Epidemiology
Introduction to Public Health
Advanced Human Nutrition
Introduction to Botanicals and Herbs
The best way to explore if a bachelor of biomedical
science degree from National University is right for you is to
visit campus. There you can discuss your scheduling needs
with an advisor, and see how on-campus and online learning can work
