Anatomy 1 – ANAT 1101 (60 hours)

The first of the anatomy course will introduce the internal organs and functions of the body. We will review the locations of each organ and learn how to palpate the trunk. This course will help students understand the location of each organ of the body and where to be cautions when needling specific location and depth on the trunk of the body.
