This 8-week summer program is designed for undergraduate students interested in healthcare-related careers (medicine, physical therapy, etc). It includes intensive study of human anatomy & physiology, analysis of current clinical research, and exercises to improve communication skills.
Students must be registered for both BIOL 107 (Human Anatomy) and BIOL 108 (Human Physiology) at Davis & Elkins College.
BIOL 107 Human Anatomy
This course is designed to provide students with an understanding of basic anatomical principles relating to function of the human body. Identification of bones, muscles, and blood vessels is emphasized.
BIOL 108 Human Physiology
This course is designed to provide students with an understanding of basic human physiology, with particular emphasis on the nervous system, the cardiovascular system, and renal function. For the laboratory portion of the course, students are expected to diagnose standardized clinical cases.
In addition to coursework associated with BIOL 107 and 108, students are expected to participate in all supplemental sessions. Assignments include essay writing, clinical case presentations, and analysis of clinical research articles.
