OT 312 Applied Functional Anatomy, 4 credits

This course will provide the student with a detailed understanding of the musculoskeletal anatomy of the limbs, trunk, neck and head in humans. Since this understanding is critical to enhance the ability of the student to work with clients with disabilities, it is considered as a foundation for the study of occupational therapy intervention. The focus of the course will be on how bones and muscles work to produce movement. Case studies will be used to facilitate learning. The course will include some content on the nerves and blood supply to these organs, as they influence function.
