Course Description

Join us for this collaborative continuing education course offering by the faculty of Doctor of Physical Therapy programs in the Philadelphia area. This two-day, laboratory intensive course will feature 15 hours of hands-on gross dissection from the hip complex to the distal phalanges, guided by decorated leaders of post-professional and graduate education, and clinical specialists.   A 3 hour on-line component to be viewed prior to the lab course will provide background knowledge of lower extremity anatomy and cadaver lab safety. 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. 

Open and applicable to PT's, OT's, and ATC's. This course will be a total of 18 CEU's. 

Temple University is a Pennsylvania State Board of PT approved CEU provider.
