Abstract

Given the presence of so many educated men and women today, one would expect that there would be a sufficient number of anatomy teachers. Point in fact though, there are too few healthcare professionals with a credible knowledge of and actual hands-on laboratory experiences in anatomy instruction and application to human movement and healthcare. While there are numerous reasons why anatomy is no longer taught in exercise physiology and related degree programs, one in particular is the cost, time, and challenges to maintain a dissection room. Another reason is the unsupportive academic infrastructure. None of these reasons is justified. Anatomy is obviously essential for exercise physiologists as credible healthcare professionals.
