The HAPS Institute (HAPS-I), the professional development branch of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) has approved the Anatomia Italiana travel programs as a three-credit graduate course. Anatomy professors now have the option of earning graduate credit through HAPS-I as an additional component of their travel.
Enrollment in the HAPS-I course is not required to participate in the travel component, but offered as an option for those who wish to earn graduate credit, and justify professional development funding. Tuition paid to HAPS-I does not cover Anatomia Italiana travel costs.
Preceded by several weeks of online readings and discussions, the center piece of the course is a 12-day experience in Italy. After the travel experience, students develop an interdisciplinary teaching module for their anatomy courses that combines the scholarly readings with the lived experience in Italy.
The next session is scheduled for June 12 – 24, 2016.
