Online Anatomy for the Health Professions

ANAT 1005: Online Anatomy Lecture and Lab Course

UNE Academic Calendar | UNE Academic Catalog | Technical Requirements

Anatomy, ANAT 1005, is a one-semester upper-level undergraduate online course that focuses on an integrated study of human anatomy using a systemic approach to provide a solid foundation of body structure, which is paramount to understanding physiological and pathological concepts. This course includes anatomy content from a theoretical point of view, as well as from the practical applications of the anatomical content in clinical settings. In order to increase student academic performance and facilitate better memorization of the anatomical structures, this course includes hands-on dissection of actual organs, as well as the use of virtual 3D interactive anatomy software that will allow students to perform virtual dissections.

Complete at your own pace

Working at the pace typical for a four-semester hour course, the average student will complete this online anatomy class in approximately 16 weeks. 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.


At least one semester of college-level biology is strongly suggested to be successful in this course. All prerequisite courses must have been completed successfully within the past seven years.
