Two of the most popular and well-known continuing education courses in the College of Health Sciences will reach impressive milestones this year.
The Gross Dissection and Kinesiology course and the Neuroanatomical Dissection courses have reached their 25th and 15th year anniversaries, respectively. The courses have served practicing professionals and educators worldwide, providing a rare opportunity for anatomical dissection in a continuing education format.
The Gross Dissection and Kinesiology course alternates between an upper and lower extremity focus in successive years. Participants in the four-day course perform complete anatomical dissections, elucidating relationships between muscle and joint structure and function, with a special emphasis on kinesiology synergies.
The course, offered this year from July 10-13, is directed by Dr. Donald Neumann, professor of physical therapy, and author of renowned text Kinesiology of the Musculoskeletal System. Dr. Neumann has won numerous awards for teaching and research during his career at Marquette, as well multiple prestigious Fulbright Fellowships. The course is co-taught by Dr. Gregory Rajala, associate professor of biomedical cciences and former member of the U.S. Speed Skating Sports Medicine team, and Dr. Guy Simoneau, professor of physical therapy and editor-in-chief of the Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy.
The Neuroanatomical Dissection course, offered July 18-20, 2013, is directed by Dr. William E. Cullinan, professor of biomedical sciences and dean of the college of health sciences. The course features a detailed human brain dissection component conducted over three days designed to emphasize three-dimensional aspects of central nervous system organization.
The course also includes topical lectures and instruction from college faculty, including Drs. David Baker, Murray Blackmore SuJean Choi, Paul Gasser, Behanm Ghasemzadeh, Sheila Schindler-Ivens, Tina Stoeckmann, and Robert Wheeler.
The course has been attended by psychologists, physicians, neuroscientists, therapists, anatomists, and medical educators from around the world.
