Teaching Activities


Course Coordinator and Instructor:

VM 616, Functional Anatomy (Fall semester)

This is a required course for the first-year students in the Professional Veterinary Medical Program. Students attend five one-hour lectures, one hour of recitation, and four lab sections (2 hours each) each week. Gross anatomy of the dog and the horse are covered comprehensively, with comparative aspects related to feline, porcine and ruminant anatomy.

BMS 545, Neuroanatomy (Spring semester)

This is a five-credit course in human neuroanatomy. Students attend three one-hour lectures and two lab sections (2 hours each) each week. Our emphasis is on the normal function of the nervous system and the clinical presentation of dysfunction. We make extensive use of human and veterinary cases of neurologic disease, presented in video format in the teaching laboratory.

Instructor:

VM 619, Veterinary Neurobiology (Spring semester)

I provide a series of lectures in this required course for the first-year students in the Professional Veterinary Medical Program. The Veterinary Neurobiology course emphasizes neuroanatomy in a functional context and makes extensive use of case-based instruction and testing.
