This course is designed to give students a practical overview of the anatomy of arms and legs. Arms will be studied for two weeks followed by studying legs for two weeks. In the fifth week, students will be able to choose from a variety of reference and will be able to implement the information studied during the first four weeks. The anatomy will be covered in a way that allows in depth study one week followed by using that same information the following week in an abbreviated yet more practical manner. This will help to bridge the gap between academic knowledge and the practical implementation of that knowledge.

The Livestream Video Archive will be available for all livestream students until Sept 19th.
