We will go system by system
It helps to connect what we are learning to what we are able to see, we will learn the words that apply to one system within the human body per week, I will also include some veterinary medicine.
Many of the diagrams that we will use for class will be sent to your school email, they cannot be posted on this public website due to copyright protections.
We will begin with an overview of the entire human body to get a general idea and then look at each system in the coming months.
