combination of Rehab 544 and 545 is a 2-quarter series
on human musculoskeletal anatomy. It is an
intensive study of anatomy and kinesiology, as well as
an introduction to basic biomechanics. These are
difficult courses, primarily because of the vastness
of the material that must be mastered.
Basically determined on a negatively skewed curve (most grades will be fairly high). Those at the top will probably receive a 4.0. Those at the bottom will receive whatever grade I feel they deserve (typically anywhere from 2.5 to 3.0). The others will be spread out between those extremes. There is no set, arbitrary passing level (like 80%). The actual passing level depends on many factors, such as the difficulty of the exams in any given year. For what it is worth, the actual passing level is typically in the 70% range (+/- 2 or 3). It is anticipated that most students will perform well and will receive relatively high grades. IT IS TO EVERYONE'S ADVANTAGE TO WORK TOGETHER. You are no longer competing with other students for grades or to get into school. Rather, your overall goal is to become the best professional you can and to help your peers to do the same. In this course your goal is to learn musculoskeletal anatomy as completely as possible, and since you all now are part of the overall umbrella of rehabilitation you need also to help your classmates in learning.
Other Items -- Not sure exactly what I might put
here yet. Perhaps additional Study Questions as
they come up (though these should probably go on
another page). What do you think?
