Knowledge of anatomical structure of the body is basic to understanding musculoskeletal function and how both structure and function are modified by exercise or disease. Ironically, at a time when knowledge of anatomy is increasingly important, exercise physiologists are facing a major crisis in anatomical education. There is a major shortage of academic exercise physiologists willing to teach gross anatomy. Many faculty members are simply not academically prepared to teach anatomy. Yet, the students of exercise physiology need a thorough anatomy education to be credible healthcare professionals. This is true for professionals in physical therapy and athletic training and it is true for exercise physiologists too.
