The study of anatomy and physiology is the foundation for any health-related profession. Students who take this subject must attend both lectures and a laboratory session, during which the information received in the lectures is put to use in the laboratory. In the medical field, the hands-on experience is crucial, and this is the main function of the laboratory. The A&P laboratory has been equipped with the most modern technology available, as well as two cadavers that are used for dissection. The highest level of understanding the material covered in the study of human anatomy and physiology is through dissections on cadavers and organs, as well as clinical laboratory analysis. Basic concepts of electrocardiogram, heart sounds, blood pressure, pulse wave, electroencephalography, pulmonary studies, and other related concepts are also conducted. The students are therefore engaged in critical thinking and problem solving regarding anatomy and physiology concepts.
During the summer, the A&P laboratory is used for three one-week camps for high-school students. For more information visit the Office of Conference and Camp Services, where camp information is posted closer to the dates of the camps.
