Course Description

Join us for this collaborative continuing education course offering by the faculties of Philadelphia area Doctor of Physical Therapy programs. This three-day, laboratory intensive course will feature 16 hours of hands-on gross dissection from the shoulder complex to the distal phalanges, guided by decorated leaders of post-professional and graduate education, and clinical specialists. Participants will be provided with the unique opportunity to explore human anatomy in an interactive environment, and enhance their understanding of the key concepts that guide clinical practice. A 4 hour on-line component to be viewed prior to the lab course will provide background knowledge of upper extremity anatomy and cadaver lab safety. Open and applicable to PT's, OT's, and ATC's. This course will be a total of 20 CEU's.  Temple University is a Pennsylvania State Board of PT approved CEU provider.   Course price is $445.

Learner Outcomes

1. Explore the upper extremity through dissection to identify key bony, muscular, and neurovascular structures. 
2. Develop a sound understanding of the spatial relationship of anatomical structures in the upper extremity through gross dissection, models, and discussion.  
3. Discuss the role of human anatomy and biomechanics for the application of principles into clinical practice.
4. Review, develop, and refine cadaveric dissection skills.
