New Courses for the Class of 2014
- Clinical Anatomy Foundations is a team based course designed to prepare students for a multitude of health profession careers from medical illustration and simulation to medicine. It is a unique blend of systems-based and regional instruction with a focus on clinical relevance. The course will require an active learner approach that involves flipped classrooms, small groups, multimedia, plastinated material, models and prosected cadavers. Each week students are expected to complete online preparatory modules prior to an hour of interactive flipped classroom. There is also a two hour lab experience per week to actively reinforce the week's learning objectives. This lab will take the form of small group interactive foundation stations and clinically relevant stations which students will rotate through in teams.
