Course DescriptionAll body organs are made up of combinations of the four basic tissues: epithelium, connective tissue, muscle, and nervous tissue. In this course, students apply the knowledge gained in prerequisite life science courses to examine the histological structure and cellular specializations of organs and organ systems of the body. This curriculum in histology is typical of what students study in any medical, dental, and allied health course at universities throughout the world. What makes this course unique is the opportunity for students to become engaged with innovative learning resources through a number of interactive tools presented within an online learning platform, coupled with modern online pedagogy. Another exciting feature is being able to view histological sections of body tissues and organs using innovative virtual microscopy tools.
