Quote for the month: The brick walls are there for a reason. They're not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture. 2008

For Anatomy diagram links see below:

Diagrams are provided as blank sketches and as completed diagrams. The blank sketches are provided so that those who wish may make hard copies and practice completing the diagrams. This is a very good way to test your knowledge of Anatomy.

Lecture Notes: lecture notes posted on this page are predominantly for the use of my A & P I and A & P II students. The vast majority of my human anatomy lectures are done in diagram format, so they do not have accompanying written lectures. However, many of them, such as the respiratory system, cardiovascular system, reproductive systems, and urinary system have written notes that are useful to the human anatomy students.
