The Master of Science in Human Anatomy & Physiology Instruction—the MS-HAPI—is a graduate program for A&P teachers, especially for those who already have a graduate/professional degree. A combination of science courses (enough to qualify you to teach at the college level) and courses in contemporary instructional practice, this program helps you be your best in both on-campus and remote teaching. Kevin Patton is a faculty member in this program at Northeast College of Health Sciences. Check it out!

Million Dollar Words Explained

9 minutes

Our A&P students can use those "million-dollar words" they learn from us (such as adrenocorticotropic hormone or carbaminohemoglobin) to impress their friends and family. But, more importantly, the nutrition concepts they learn from this book can help our students, as well as others in their lives.

★ Bonus recipe (not mentioned in this episode) is Kevin's Stress Diet for Anatomy & Physiology Students (you can link to it or adapt it for your own A&P students)
