Fall 2017 Night Lab Syllabus

To schedule your time, download a handy weekly schedule template here

  •   For cadaver dissection, your lab manual will regularly direct you to Dr. Craig Goodmurphy's Anatomy Guy website
    •  Dr. Allan Forsman  from ETSU has posted YouTube tutorials for many of the models we use in lab.


    Pre-lab Assignments  1, 12, & 13 are due at the beginning of class, and will not be accepted late
    nor graded if you skip lab. 
    Text figures to label
    1 Body as a Whole

       You can also get additional practice with this Histology Lab Practical

    LEARNING TIP: Take your own micrographs, draw leader lines, and post them on Quizlet (or similar program) to share with your lab partners.
