SC1: Anatomy 1
Introduction to Anatomy and Physiology. Subjects: the body as a whole, the parts and integration of those parts and the introduction to the integumentary, skeletal and muscular systems.
In this course, students will learn about anatomy, physiology and pathologies of the body; the role of cells, membranes and tissues; and medical, anatomical and directional terminology. Students will be instructed on the 11 systems of the body, the intricate functions of the integumentary, muscle and skeletal systems, and the effects manual therapies have on each.
SC2: Anatomy 2
A more in-depth look into anatomy and physiology. Systems covered: the nervous and endocrine systems as well as a look into the neuromuscular connections.
In this course, students will learn about the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system, the endocrine system, and the connections of these systems to the muscles and connective tissues of the body. Students will learn the intricate functions, pathologies and the effect of manual therapies on these systems.
SC3: Anatomy 3
This is the last installment of Anatomy and Physiology with a focus on specialized systems of the body. Systems covered: digestive, lymphatic, reproductive, urinary, circulatory and respiratory systems.
In this class, students will learn about: the digestive system and how the body assimilates the foods we eat; the lymphatic system and our immunity; the reproductive system for both male and female anatomy; the urinary system and our processes of elimination; the circulatory system and the heart; and the respiratory system and the importance of breath.This course will also cover the pathologies associated with these systems and our role as manual therapists throughout.
