The Learning Environment

Pathology and Anatomical Sciences (PAS) offers instruction to undergraduate students requiring a fundamental Anatomy course to enter any of the health related programs offered at UB or elsewhere. Our undergraduate course is taught by our faculty (not students) and consist of lectures and laboratories (some
demonstrations but mostly interactive) designed to introduce students to the anatomy essential to any of the health care programs. Many, if not all of these programs offered at UB require our course as a prerequisite. Laboratories offer ample opportunity for direct student/faculty interaction, but participation in UBLearns allows near universal access to assignments, announcements, and ready email communication with faculty and one another. Students seeking further direct interaction with faculty can do so via regularly scheduled office hours, or by special appointment.

About Our Facilities

Lectures are provided in large multimedia-equipped facilities with full IT support.  Laboratories are offered on multiple days and times to maximize options, and in small class settings to provide comfortable and efficient student/teacher interactions.  Models and specimens from our gross anatomy laboratory are regularly included in our labs, whereas other materials are provided by Biotechnical and Clinical Laboratory Sciences for a well-rounded perspective on human anatomy.  

About Our Faculty

We are a diverse department with specialties of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences at the medical school campus, four university-affiliated hospital systems, more than 40 full-time and volunteer faculty as well as residency and graduate programs. The disciplines of pathology and anatomy, both based on the structure of cells and tissues, are the foundation of almost every clinical specialty. They are at the vanguard of discovery, diagnosis and patient care and they are arguably the most exciting and rewarding of all the fields in medicine and biomedical science. The mission of our department is centered around four main areas: education, patient care, research and scholarship and service to the region. Our educational efforts are aimed at medical and dental students, graduate students, residents and fellows as well as undergraduate education.

ANA Courses


  • ANA 113LLB Human Anatomy
    Lecture

    Comprehensive course focused on the gross anatomy and histology of human tissues and major organ systems. Designed for health sciences majors, this is a rigorous course emphasizing clinically relevant anatomy. Lectures are supplemented by a laboratory component consisting of demonstrations of cadaveric specimens.

    Credits: 4
    Grading: Graded (GRD)
    Typically Offered: Fall, Spring, Summer
  • ANA 198SEM UB Seminar
    Seminar

    The one credit UB Seminar is focused on a big idea or challenging issue to engage students with questions of significance in a field of study and, ultimately, to connect their studies with issues of consequence in the wider world. Essential to the UB Curriculum, the Seminar helps transition to UB through an early connection to UB faculty and the undergraduate experience at a comprehensive, research university. This course is equivalent to any 198 offered in any subject. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade of F or R may not be able to repeat the course during the fall or spring semester.

    Credits: 1
    Grading: Graded (GRD)
    Typically Offered: Fall, Spring
    Other Requisites: Students who have already successfully completed the UB seminar course may not repeat this course. If you have any questions regarding enrollment for this course, please contact your academic advisor.
  • ANA 199SEM UB Seminar
    Seminar

    The three credit UB Seminar is focused on a big idea or challenging issue to engage students with questions of significance in a field of study and, ultimately, to connect their studies with issues of consequence in the wider world. Essential to the UB Curriculum, the Seminar helps students with common learning outcomes focused on fundamental expectations for critical thinking, ethical reasoning, and oral communication, and learning at a university, all within topic focused subject matter. The Seminars provide students with an early connection to UB faculty and the undergraduate experience at a comprehensive, research university. This course is equivalent to any 199 offered in any subject. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade of F or R may not be able to repeat the course during the fall or spring semester.

    Credits: 3
    Grading: Graded (GRD)
    Typically Offered: Fall, Spring
    Other Requisites: Students who have already successfully completed the first year seminar course may not repeat this course. If you have any questions regarding enrollment for this course, please contact your academic advisor.
  • ANA 407LLB Gross Human Anatomy
    Lecture

    There is a fee associated with this class. Eight-week course for students in exercise science and occupational therapy only. Laboratories involve dissection of the human cadaver, emphasizing the musculoskeletal system. Lectures emphasize clinical correlations.
