    BIOL 233 Human Anatomy and Physiology (4)( )() () ()

    Continuation of the principles of human anatomy and physiology. Includes the anatomy and physiology of the reproductive, cardiovascular, lymphatic, sensory, and endocrine systems. A cat specimen is used as an anatomical model (each student will be receiving a cat specimen via mail for dissection). An interactive CD ROM is used for the physiological portion in the laboratory segment of this course.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


    This brings two questions to mind.
    #1. Am I the only one that would be disturbed recieving a dead cat in my mail (not to mention what if this were taken in a summer semester, how long is it sitting on your porch before you get home?)

    #2. If you end up doing multiple labs with said cat, how does one go about store a half dissected cat from week to week? Next to the milk?

    We received pigs in my online bio class. We had to submit pictures of the organs.

    Eastern Oregon University, they are one of the few universities that I've been able to find that have a physics w/lab online. Not going to take it, but I was surprised to find that A&P class.

    in high school, i took an accelerated human anatomy class with cat dissection at a local jc. we had to dissect the cat in 2 weeks, which was pretty crazy. needless to say, we had to take our cat home over the weekend to finish tagging the muscles. used an old icebox to keep it "fresh."

    ...well they never said they shipped it "ready for dissection" it may be a "do it yourself" specimen.

    There are tons of places, awhile ago I had a hairbrain idea that I was going to do my whole pre-med online. Then I found out some schools frown upon it, not to mention there isn't a single school that I could do all of my pre-reqs through.
    I have sinced decided a full year of getting my butt back in a classroom would be a better idea, ecspecially if a school asks about the classes and I get accepted, and they want me to retake the classes. As it is now I can stand retaking 3 classes in a year before marticulation, 7 might drive me batso.


    Dissected or not, don't you think a dead cat baking in the summer heat all day would stink?
