This is a team taught course involving the full time laboratory instructional effort of 5 instructors (3 faculty and 2 staff instructors). Two instructors (Dr. Gerard and Dr. Duff) are responsible for the lecture content. Space requirements include use of a lecture theater for 100 students once a week and exclusive use of the anatomy laboratory within the CVM for three dissection laboratories each week. At additional times the anatomy laboratory will be reserved for anatomy student self-learning purposes.

The Course will:

1) provide a base of anatomic knowledge that can be used in veterinary medical problem solving; expand the professional veterinary student's anatomic knowledge to include that of the horse, ox, small ruminant, and pig.

2) correlate this knowledge with that being developed concurrently in other courses.

3) prepare the student to comprehend more effectively information that will be presented in subsequent courses in the professional curriculum.

4) instill and develop an appreciation for the importance of anatomy as it applies to the functions and dysfunctions of the body systems, and to the prevention, control, diagnosis, and treatment of animal diseases.


Student Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, students will be able to:



  • recognize gross anatomical structures of the horse, goat, calf, and pig indicated in the dissection guide as measured by performance on written and practical examinations.

  • integrate anatomical knowledge to veterinary medical problems and clinical cases as measured by performance on written and practical examinations.

  • associate/correlate anatomical structures to imaging modalities - particularly radiology as measured by performance on written and practical examinations.

  • demonstrate an understanding of the basic embryological development of selected body systems as measured by performance on written and practical examinations.

  • demonstrate appropriate team work and communication skills including attendance, participation, peer to peer instruction, and professional behavior as measured by peer and instructor observations and evaluation.

ABGS Reviewer comments:
-Are the credit hours correct? Does 4 credit hours = 1 lecture contact hour + 6 lab contact hours? RESPONSE: Yes, 6 lab hours = 3 credit hours
-Determination of Successful Learning on syllabus does not correspond with the evaluation methods on the CAF. RESPONSE: The CAF lists 2 exams, a final, and participation; the syllabus does not mention participation, but both total 850 points.
