Online Anatomy Course

In an online anatomy course, students are introduced to human body systems and structural features. They learn about aspects of the upper limbs, lower limbs, head, neck, thorax, abdomen and pelvis. Some schools offer programs that are specifically intended for future health professionals, which emphasize the clinical aspects of anatomy.

Many of these classes can be completed entirely online through course delivery systems that enable students to access video lectures, submit assignments and communicate with their professors. Even the lab assignments can be completed via distance education, thanks to interactive software programs that include detailed images of the organs and body systems being discussed or lab kits that allow students to complete assignments at home.

Program Information

Online anatomy courses may be included within degree and certificate programs in health and science-related subjects.
