The Course Objectives


Histology is the study of organ and tissue structure at the microscopic level. It can be considered as microanatomy. Histology gives an insight into how cellular components are structurally and functionally related. By the end of the course students should be able to understand the basic tissues and organ systems; recognize their variable structure and function and give examples of their locations.
