    ANAT 8052 - Histology of Graduate Studies II (3 Credit Hours)



    The purpose of this course is to act as part 2 to a continuing progress course ANAT8051 which will deliver appropriate histology content for graduate students and medical illustration students. At the end of this second part, Histology for Graduate Studies and Medical Illustration II, students will receive a grade (A,B,C,D, and F) as a result of grades accumulated from both ANAT8051 and ANAT8052. The graduate and medical illustrations students will be integrated into the histology component of the first-year medical students curriculum for the entirety of the course. Since that content is split over the fall and spring semester, graduate and medical illustration students will be required to complete both ANAT8051 and ANAT8052 to gain the credit and grade for this histology course. This course will be required as part 2 of a graduate histology course that spans two semesters. Without this second part students would not be able to cover all of the appropriate content to be comparable to the similar ANAT8050 course that is offered in the summer semester. Another need of this course is to have a second course for students in the Cellular Biology and Anatomy PhD program and Medical Illustration program that occurs outside of the summer semester for those that cannot take the ANAT8050 course during that semester. The need might also arise in a few years that the summer course may not be offered due to faculty retirement. The setup of this course will allow for a smooth transition if that scenario should occur. Since a very similar course already exists in the medical school curriculum, integrating the graduate and medical illustration students into that course would be a seamless transition compared to recruiting faculty to coordinate and teach in a summer course.
