Shortage of Qualified Instructors
Pp. 29-37 (9)
Given the presence of so many educated men and women today, one would
expect that there would be a sufficient number of anatomy teachers. Point in fact
though, there are too few healthcare professionals with a credible knowledge of and
actual hands-on laboratory experiences in anatomy instruction and application to
human movement and healthcare. While there are numerous reasons why anatomy is
no longer taught in exercise physiology and related degree programs, one in particular
is the cost, time, and challenges to maintain a dissection room. Another reason is the
unsupportive academic infrastructure. None of these reasons is justified. Anatomy is
obviously essential for exercise physiologists as credible healthcare professionals.
