Anatomy Academy

Anatomy Academy

The Anatomy Academy is an innovative outreach program instituted by LAU’s Gilbert and Rose-Marie Chagoury School of Medicine and the Education Department at the School of Arts & Sciences. The Academy serves to share with the community expert knowledge in the areas of anatomy, physiology and science education as well as state-of-the-art resources. The program is launched by the CME/CPD office of the LAU’s School of Medicine.

The purpose of the academy is to provide practical learning experiences for in-service biology/ science teachers and science coordinators to help them refine and further develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to teach anatomy and physiology at the intermediate and secondary levels.

Over the course of three full days, the participants engage in hands-on, authentic learning experiences in the anatomy and physiology labs at LAU’s School of Medicine - using cadavers and virtual reality simulations - that are facilitated by an expert medical doctor and a physiologist. They also have the opportunity to relate their learning experiences to classroom practices guided by a science educator.
