Description:
The classes in this series follow the pattern of lecture, practice, and review as it covers the topics of bones and bony landmarks, joints, muscles, and neurovascular structures.

Please be advised that these classes involve disrobing and minimal draping to allow direct contact with your skin. This direct contact greatly enhances the palpation of structures and is needed for the drawing of these structures. In order to accommodate these goals, be prepared for disrobing or wear clothing that will allow easy access to your skin. Good hygiene is also a must.

Student Model Lectures use reference texts (Trail Guide to the Body, by Andrew Biel and Atlas of Human Anatomy, by Frank Netter), visual media (Acland's DVD Atlas of Human Anatomy, by Robert D. Acland) and demonstration of practice.

Practice involves visualizing, locating, palpating, and drawing (with washable markers) structures on co-students.

Review involves visual media (Acland's DVD Atlas of Human Anatomy, by Robert D. Acland) and verbal discussion
