GUIDELINES:

Biology 248L is a cadaver-based laboratory designed to accompany Biology 238, Human Anatomy and Physiology II. The Prerequisites are the successful completion of BIOL 237 and 247L. 248L topics include the study of the following organ systems: cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, urinary, endocrine, and reproductive. It is strongly suggested that you take BIOL 248L and BIOL 238 simultaneously. These courses are designed to complement one another and information gleaned in one will be relied upon in the other.

 Lab Syllabus (Lab Guide): (Available online only.)

Optional Text: The Anatomy Coloring Book, by Kapit & Elson

Some lab manuals are packaged with the Adam Interactive Anatomy Student Lab Guide and software at a significant savings over the prices when purchased alone.
