ANATOMY Week Ahead: 1/4-1/5 and 1/8-1/12


Welcome Back! We will kick off this semester with a discussion of the endocrine system and its related organs and disorders. I have include the complete notes handout for the unit. You will notice I have posted which sections of the notes are due ahead of time. You should have the section completed on the assigned day so you can participate fully in the class discussions and activities. I have also included some study diagrams that will be used in class. To start the semester we will learn some suturing techniques and then start the endocrine system on Monday. Make sure you have the appropriate notes section completed for Monday discussion.

*** For Thursday bring to class an old sock you can cut up and an empty plastic bottle about the size of a water bottle or sports drink.
