Essay Topics for a Written Assignment Assessment in Anatomy and Physiology

  • Martin Caon


An additional form of assessment in anatomy and physiology is by written assignment (an essay). This affords the student the opportunity to research the published literature about a topic and to write about it logically, clearly and succinctly while learning to cite the scientific literature that is referred to. The essay topics given below are intended to be descriptive rather than prescriptive. That is, students are given the freedom to take the essay topic in almost any direction. The statements that follow the essay topic are intended to guide students in deciding what might be included in the essay. Additional material should be included if it is appropriate for your essay.
