3 written examinations# 20% each total = 60%
Make up examinations are generally not permitted. If you cannot attend an exam for any reason, it is expected that you will notify the department prior to the examination. Make-ups will not automatically be granted.
* Laboratory exams are divided into a written cadaver laboratory exam and a surface anatomy/osteology practical exam. Each component (cadaver and palpation/osteology) counts as 50% of that laboratory examination’s total score.
# A minimum of a B must be earned in this course to continue in the program. Further, all exams must be passed with a minimum of a C grade regardless of the final course average.
In the event that the minimal grade for the course has been earned but an individual examination grade was less than a ‘C,’ the student will receive an incomplete until that section of the course has been satisfactorily passed by means of a terminal comprehensive examination.
Old clothing/lab coats are necessary for lab work. Disposable gloves are also required for your protection as well as protective eyewear in the laboratory. All students must have Hepatitis B vaccine prior to admission into the lab.
The instructor reserves the right to alter the syllabus, schedule or grading policy for the entire class if it is determined that such a change will benefit the course.
SPECIAL LAB NOTES:
Labs are divided into two major components; cadaver dissection and surface/osteology study. The management and operation of these two lab components will be explained in class.
