list of sites display web pages written by Gwen V. Childs, Ph.D.
while she was Professor and
Vice-Chair, Department of Anatomy and Neurosciences. They were originally
for use by graduate and
medical students at the University of Texas Medical
Branch in Galveston, TX. Dr. Childs now is at the University of
Arkansas for Medical Sciences, in Little Rock, AR.
The following web pages served as
study guides and handouts for lectures in Cell
Biology. Each was designed to introduce the topic and provide structure/function
correlations. The guides are not intended to be a complete
presentation of all of the material in that subject area since each unit
was team taught and Dr. Childs provided the introductory material that
correlated structure and function. The guides provide illustrations missing in
the assigned text. The web pages also provide questions that students can use to test
their knowledge as they learn the material. Use the following menu, or scroll down to

I photographed the entire microanatomy class slide set
for the new Integrated Medical Curriculum
at the University of Texas Medical Branch for use by
Medical students as they go through the new curriculum (which has no
formal Microanatomy course. It is also being used by Graduate students in Microanatomy. The
Web Atlas menu
includes practice practical exams. It also includes links to the
above Cell Biology pages. Finally, it is a site for present and future pages
supporting Microanatomy presentations and lectures.
are over 300 photographs of the Medical/Graduate Microanatomy Slide set at this site. They
were taken with Nomarski optics to illustrate major structures/regions/cells studied in
the Microanatomy class. In the Web atlas (described above), these
are beginning to be indexed and catalogued so that they can be used more independently.
This material refers to the Graduate
Microanatomy course at UTMB taught in 1996-1999.
In 1998 and 1999, we used problem based
learning exercises, study guides, and laboratory practical exercises in this course.
For the 1998 course, each of these guides is on the web site and the individual pages can
be found by clicking on links in the Microanatomy Course Calendar.
The course is no longer taught; its content has been spread to systems
courses in both the graduate and medical school.
laboratory exercises were "low stake" assessments that the students
could use to
practice their working knowledge and review for the 4 high stake assessments. The
latter evaluation periods were held in the laboratory and were integrated lab and lecture
exams, asking the students to point to structures with their microscopes and answer
questions about the structures. About 40-50% of the evaluation involved problem
