Mammalian Anatomy and Physiology - (15 credits)

This module is designed to develop students' understanding of the relationship between structure and function in a range of mammalian species by exploring the anatomical diversity and physiological control of the major body systems. The study of a gross anatomy is based primarily on careful dissections coupled with close histological observations to give students a concept of the shape, texture, location and relations of structures and integrated functions. This module provides a theoretical basis for husbandry techniques.
