FAB 101 - Functional Anatomy and Biomechanics of the Human Spine

This course addresses structure, function, and clinical concepts of the human spinal column and pelvis, as well as an introduction to elements of the central and peripheral nervous systems. Emphasis is on the interrelationships between structure and function as well as biomechanical principles associated with static position and dynamic movement of the spine and pelvis. Instruction includes lecture, human dissection laboratory, small group discussion sessions, and independent working projects. Laboratory activities will include dissection of human cadavers, the study of pre-dissected materials, models, and problem-based small group discussions.
