OS 301 Applied Functional Anatomy

4 credits

This course will provide the student with a detailed understanding of the musculoskeletal anatomy of the limbs, trunk, neck and head in humans. Since this understanding is critical to enhance the ability of the student to work with clients with disabilities, and to promote meaningful and effective occupational therapy practice, it is considered as a foundation for the study of occupational therapy intervention. The focus of the course will be on how bones and muscles work to produce movement. Case studies based on conditions will be used to facilitate learning, with a focus on understanding occupational performance via dynamic reasoning while using the language of the OT Practice Framework. The course will include some content on the nerves and blood supply to these organs, as they·influence function.

Prerequisite(s): BIO 211 , BIO 212 , PHY 117 , and enrollment in BS in Occupational Science major.
