BIMD 500. Cellular and Molecular Foundations of Biomedical Science. 6 credits. Fall semester. Prerequisites: (a) a year of organic chemistry or (b) one semester of organic chemistry plus a course in either biochemistry or cell biology, or (c) permission of the course director. A series of lectures and discussion groups with emphasis on interrelated themes in basic biochemistry, cell biology and molecular biology. Lectures will include current and emerging areas of research, while discussion will center on methods, techniques and expansion of lecture topics.
BIMD 510. Basic Biomedical Statistics. 2 credits. A series of lectures, demonstrations and exercises to provide students with the basic rationales for the use of statistics in the assessment of biomedical data and a selected set of the most common and useful statistical tests. Spring semester.
BIMD 513. Seminars in Biomedical Science. 1 credit. A series of presentations on original research conducted by UND faculty members as well as extramural leaders in academic and industrial research in the biomedical sciences. Students will participate through assigned reading and writing exercises related to the presentations.
BIMD 516. Responsible Conduct of Research. *1 credit. A series of lectures and discussion sessions covering topics related to responsible conduct in research. Students will examine a variety of issues including introduction to ethical decision making, the experience of conflict, laboratory practices, data management, reporting of research, conflict of interest, and compliance. Examples and case studies will be drawn primarily from the biomedical sciences.
ANAT 501. Biomedical Information Retrieval. 1 credit. S/U grading only. Offered every session either in a group setting or on an individual basis. This course integrates electron information retrieval techniques with biomedical research education to develop the student's ability to augment traditional learning and research. Electronic techniques covered include database searching and Internet resources.
ANAT 505. Seminar in Anatomy and Cell Biology. 1 credit. This course provides students an opportunity to organize and orally present scientific information to an audience in a forum conducive to the development of their skills in effective communication. Seminars delivered by students, UND faculty, and other invited speakers present current advancements in biomedical research that promote student learning of principles of biomedical sciences.
ANAT 513. Gross Anatomy. 6 credits. Gross Anatomy will be an intensive one semester course that will use a regional approach to enhance the understanding of the structural and functional relationships as well as organization of the adult human body. Lectures will be reinforced with the complete cadaver dissection and multiple clinical imaging modalities to strengthen problem solving and critical thinking skills. Prerequisites: Permission of course director and ANAT 204L or equivalent.
ANAT 517. Principles of Histology. 3 credits. Principles of Histology is a laboratory and discussion based course that involves a strong self-study component through the use of virtual slides as well as lecture and laboratory orientation videos. By the end of the course the student will have demonstrated a significant knowledge base of tissue microanatomy sufficient for understanding and applying the principles to a wide range of research projects. The student will also have sufficient knowledge of histology to be capable of teaching this material to medical, professional, graduate, and undergraduate students. Prerequisites: None.
ANAT 521. Principles of Developmental Biology. 3 credits. This is a student driven course designed to provide the student with a firm understanding of the concepts in developmental biology. Students will be using a wide range of materials from textbooks to the internet to gain a graduate level understanding including how to apply this knowledge to research applications. Student presentations will address advanced principles of developmental mechanisms and underlying human embryology. Prerequisites: None.
ANAT 522. Neuroscience. 6 credits. Faculty-guided inquiry and discussion of readings, student presentations, and neuroanatomy laboratory work introduce students to study of the structure and function of the nervous system. Topics address neural signaling and aspects of developmental, sensorimotor, regulatory, and cognitive neurobiology. Relevant experimental and clinical applications serve as preparation for further, more advanced study of the nervous system. Prerequisites: None.
ANAT 590. Readings in Anatomy and Cell Biology. 1 to 3 credits. Students may elect to do a "readings" project with any of the members of the departmental faculty, in areas related to the faculty member's research field.
ANAT 591. Special Topics in Anatomy and Cell Biology. 1 to 3 credits. Prerequisite: Permission of the instructor. A series of lectures, discussions and/or laboratory experiences developed around a specific topic in the anatomical or cell biological sciences.
ANAT 593. Research in Anatomy and Cell Biology. Credits arranged. Research is offered in the specialty fields of the faculty of the department, and involves a variety of problems and research tools in morphology and cell biology.
ANAT 595. Advanced Gross Anatomy. Credits arranged, with a maximum of six credits. Prerequisite: Anatomy 513 or equivalent. The work of the course consists of the preparation of regional dissections, made under the director of an instructor.
* Available to students registering in graduate degree programs in the biomedical sciences or by permission of the instructor.
ANAT 204. Anatomy for Paramedical Personnel. 3 credits. This series of two lectures per week presents a systematic study of the human body. F,S
ANAT 204L. Anatomy for Paramedical Personnel. 2 credits. Laboratory exploration of human gross anatomy to complement Anatomy 204. Prerequisite or Co-requisite: ANAT 204. F, S
ANAT 490. Directed Studies in Anatomy. 1–3 credits (repeatable to a maximum of 6 credits). Supervised studies and/or laboratory experiences in morphology for one or more students. F,S,SS
ANAT 498. Internship in Anatomy. 1–15 credits (repeatable to a maximum of 15 credits). Prerequisite: Junior or Senior status and instructor consent. This course will provide in-depth study and/or laboratory experiences in morphology in fields of faculty specialization. F,S,SS
