Prerequisite: Students should be taking or have taken AP Biology and have a strong interest in medicine.
This is a one-term elective for motivated students, who have or are taking AP Biology, and are interested in pursuing medical school. This course will cover a different system of the body each week. It is similar in scope to an upperclassman ‘Gross Anatomy’ college course. Students will gain a better understanding of the human body with the study of normal structure and function as well, as the effects of disease on many organ systems. The course will encompass student presentations, discussion groups, dissections, demonstrations with models, in addition to lectures. Material will be covered in depth but homework assignments will be minimal.
