The HAPS Institute (HAPS-I), the professional development branch of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) has approved Anatomia Italiana as a three-credit graduate course. While the Anatomia Italiana travel program is open to all, anatomy professors are eligible to enroll in a HAPS-I course.
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 also earn graduate credit, and justify professional development funding.
Preceded by several weeks of online readings and discussions, the center piece of the course is a 12-day experience in Italy. Students will view centuries old dissection theaters, and visually arresting anatomic wax models at university museums. An additional focus is on how the Renaissance masters conducted dissection to heighten their art. Upon their return, students will then develop an interdisciplinary teaching element for their courses.
Spaces are available for the Anatomia Italiana HAPS-I course scheduled for both travel sessions: July 6 – July 18, and July 20 – August 1, 2014. To learn more about this opportunity, visit the Itinerary page, the travel component Registration page, the HAPS-I course page, and read the course syllabus.
