Many students are nontraditional students who have elected an online anatomy course for the sake of flexibility. Since the course is self-paced, you may complete the course in less than 16 weeks.

Note: the students sometimes have older versions of the textbooks required above and often asked if they can use them for this course. The older versions can be used to a certain extent to study but it will make it sometimes difficult to find the correct diagrams and reading sections and the ideal approach remains to have the correct version of the required textbooks. Also, due to the nature of the course, students sometimes ask if they can purchase these textbooks in a digital format. These resources can indeed be purchased in a digital format through the Elsevier official website at: http://studentconsult.inkling.com/
