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!
Dr. Reece discusses the process of determining what is appropriate coverage of basic science and clinical applications in the A&P course. She also emphasizes that processes of life appear in many different organisms. And, well, things are complicated.
