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. HAPS-I 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.
To learn more about this opportunity, visit the HAPS-I course page and read the course syllabus. The next session is scheduled for summer 2015. Travel dates are June 28 – July 10, 2015. Click here to view the Itinerary.
