  1. Upper Limb

The course content is also designed to correlate with important clinical problems that students may encounter as practitioners, and additional readings assignments are included in the material to be studied by the students. The students also have the opportunity to further their knowledge of anatomy by using audio and video clips of anatomical structures (Anatomy on the Web) available through our course management system, Blackboard Learn.

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.
