This text is for the 1-semester undergraduate human anatomy laboratory course. Nearly all 1 semester anatomy courses include a laboratory requirement in addition to the regular classroom lecture. The Radke Anatomy Lab Manual will be written to not only accompany the new edition of Tortora's Principles of Human Anatomy 9e (Summer 2001), but will also work effectively in conjunction with any of the leading textbooks on the market (Martini, Marieb, Van De Graaff). The enrollment for the lab course reflects that of the textbook market - approximately 100,000 students annually.

The Radke Anatomy Lab Manual presents the material covered in a clear and concise manner and contains many interactive activities and experiments that will enhance students' ability to visualize anatomical structures. Lab exercises will be designed to require students to first apply information and to also critically evaluate it.

  • Minimal Text. Specific details are available in the textbook. We will only provide text to set up and support the activities in the lab.
  • Variety of Learning Activities. Within each lab exercise will be a variety of activities, including coloring and labeling anatomical figures, critical thinking and clinically-orientated questions that promote problem-solving.
  • Effective Use of Illustrations. Simple line drawings, that allow important features to stand out, not just duplication of figures from the text book, will support the lab activities. Histology specific to each organ system is found in that system chapter, not all lumped together in a separate section.
  • Active Diagrams. Many diagrams will be provided without labels, or in a coloring-book format to promote active learning of the material.
