Anatomy and physiology primarily serves students going into allied health and medical professions. The level of factual knowledge covered in an A&P class can be overwhelming to students. However, educational research shows that brief clinical discussions in the course can facilitate content retention for students by reinforcing facts with relevant applications. New developments in biomedical research and pharmacological testing will be discussed in this course including information on animal-free research and computer simulation modeling. Also included are ethical considerations of biomedical research and clinical research trials. The content of the course is directly applicable to those teaching classes ranging from introductory human anatomy and physiology to upper level undergraduate courses in physiology. This course is designed to facilitate your teaching as well as updating your content knowledge biomedical and clinical research basics. This course will follow a hybrid format and will require at least 20 hours of coursework, divided into three components involving asynchronous on-line instruction, synchronous virtual discussions, and assignments.
