There are several Anatomy courses specific to the organism being studied. "Animal anatomy" is sometimes called zomy; "vegetable anatomy," phytotomy; but typically, students are referring to the “human anatomy” which is sometimes called anthropotomy. Human Anatomy is often studied by both high school and undergraduate college students interested in a career in medicine.
Human Anatomy is the study of the anatomical structure of the human body. It is a thorough examination of the cells, tissues, organs and organ systems. The student’s primary goal is to identify each specific body structures and use of the correct descriptive vocabulary (sometimes in Latin). Students will also learn the functions of the each specific body structure. Some specific components of an Anatomy course that students are required to learn are: (1) identify cell types, cell organelles, tissue types and organs both microscopically and macroscopically (2) discuss the similarities and differences among types of bone and bone growth mechanisms (3) identify the structures of the heart and the names of blood vessels (4) identify the primary areas of the brain and the component parts within each area and correctly associate the specific anatomical areas of the brain with their functions…These are only a few of the objectives of any Human Anatomy course!
While many students find an anatomy course fascinating, the shear volume of knowledge they must learn can be overwhelming. Students that are intent on following a career path in a medical or related field must not simply regurgitate this information. Understanding the human anatomy is clearly the basis for many students a lifelong medical profession. For those students, getting a private tutor that can work with them through many related courses can be the key to a successful college career.
