Students enrolled in college level Anatomy and Physiology courses are required to learn brain and spinal cord anatomy and function. This course will help you develop cases incorporating radiology of the CNS into your teaching portfolio. Students find this method of teaching to be meaningful because they learn how to read radiograms and correlate their analysis with patient symptoms. It is a perfect way to integrate anatomy with physiology and teach valuable diagnostic skills at the same time. Most of your students will enter the health care field and will benefit from learning clinical problem solving skills early in their academic development. The cases developed as part this course can be used as in class activities, enhancements to your current lecture power points, or as clicker quizzes or exam questions.

Anatomia Italiana del Sud (of the South) connects art and anatomy in southern Italy, with a special focus on Sicily, a Mediterranean island at the crossroads of cultures for over 3,000 years. The itinerary examines ancient Greco-Roman depictions of the human form in sculpture, painting, and mosaic - including the body as a vehicle for religious expression in two Capuchin Crypts. Also featured are university anatomy museums in Palermo and Naples, as well as the ruins of Pompeii, a city covered with volcanic ash 2,000 years ago. Proceeded by two-weeks of online readings and discussions, the centerpiece of the course is a 12-day visit to Sicily and Naples. After the travel experience, students will develop an interdisciplinary teaching module for their anatomy courses that combines the scholarly readings with the lived experience in Italy.
