 Anatomy and Physiology is a course that requires a strong commitment to excellence. To successfully complete this intensive course you must commit to attend all lectures and laboratory sessions as well as at least 25 hours per week of studying time. In addition to reading and studying the text you should plan to spend several hours per week studying laboratory materials (microscope slides, bones, muscles, etc.). Additional resources such as computerized review programs, audiovisual materials and student tutors are available during the open laboratory sessions.



Students should attend every class session. This is critical, as class meets only twice a week.  If a student misses a class session, it is the student's responsibility to obtain the lecture notes, to keep up with the laboratory material, and to obtain handouts, assignments or other materials distributed in class.  If a student misses more than three classes, they should consider dropping the course.  Students may not reschedule or make-up exams. If a student must miss class due to prolonged illness or other unexpected circumstances, the student should notify the instructor as soon as possible to make special arrangements



Laboratory exercises must be completed in the laboratory.  Students are responsible for lab material—questions regarding lab material will appear on the practicum portion of the exams (see below) and on quizzes.



The exams will be composed of multiple-choice style questions, short answers, and a practicum portion.  Short answer questions will be drawn from a set of review questions handed out the previous week.  The practicum portion of the exam will involve identification anatomical features and structures, and will take place in the lab immediately following completion of the written portion of the exam.  The exam will contain questions pertaining to all the objectives listed for the unit. 


It is assumed that each student will do his or her own work. Cheating is unacceptable and will be referred to the Vice President of Student Affairs for disciplinary action.


Examinations may not be rescheduled or made-up due to tardiness or absence. Students with extraordinary circumstances should discuss them with the instructor as soon as the situation occurs.




Quizzes are associated with labs, and will be each Saturday unless there is a lecture exam scheduled for that day.  Quizzes will cover material presented in lab or lecture.  Quizzes will be given during the first 15 minutes of lab and may not be rescheduled or made-up due to tardiness or absence.




Due to the increasing numbers of individuals developing chemical sensitivities and the increasing awareness of such conditions, everyone who attends this class is asked to refrain from wearing any fragrance or perfume.  The greatest feasible efforts will also be taken to ensure a fresh air environment free of not only the above mentioned fragrances but also potentially harmful substances such as carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, carpet odor, organic solvents, etc.  Individuals who are unsure of the importance of this policy should see the Associate Dean for additional information.
