VTMED 6103 - Comparative Anatomy: Pattern and Function

Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: VTMED 5100 . Enrollment limited to: first-, second-, third-, and fourth-year veterinary students or permission of instructor.

J. Hermanson.

The goal of this course is to study anatomical variability among amniote (mammals, birds, and reptiles) and anamniote (amphibian and fish) species. This is accomplished by relating the anatomy of major organ systems in each species to a common basic pattern and considering the differences in a functional perspective. Five major systems are explored (integumentary, locomotory, cardiorespiratory, digestive, and urogenital) in a variety of species as available.
