Host Kevin Patton discusses issues caused by our expectations of anatomy & physiology course prerequisites and answers the question: which prerequisites work best? Recent reports of a bone-marrow recipient with donor DNA in his semen prompts a brief review of what happened. Wi-Fi fields can produce biological effects. What are they and how does Wi-Fi produce them?

Recently, the case of a bone marrow transplant recipient made the rounds. Reports mentioned that his semen contained only DNA from his donor, with none of his own DNA, which sounds weird—and perhaps not really possible. We explore what really happened—and how we might use this story to teach A&P.
Wi-Fi forms an EMF (electromagnetic field) that can produce unwanted biological effects in humans. In this segment, we explore them, as well as the proposed mechanism. That mechanisms is based on a core concept of physiology that we can leverage for showing students how "all that detail" can help them understand contemporary health issues.

Since the dawn of time, anatomy & physiology faculty have pondered the best required prerequisites for their course. Kevin relates his surprising take on those conversations.
The Master of Science in Human Anatomy & Physiology Instruction—the MS-HAPI—is a graduate program for A&P teachers. 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 power up your teaching. Kevin Patton is a faculty member in this program. Check it out!
If we know the secret (revealed only to the truly enlightened 😉), prerequisites (no matter what they are) can be a key part to the big picture of learning in our courses. Listen to this segment to learn how.

Umm... yes. But why? And how? And what, exactly? Listen and find out where Kevin lands on these questions!
