    Course Description

    By way of laboratory prosection of cadavers, this class will provide an opportunity for students to gain an in-depth understanding of human anatomy. This course examines anatomy of the extremities, back, thorax, abdomen, pelvis and perineum.


  3. Justification

    A. Please briefly explain why it is necessary and/or desirable to add this course.

    Needed for new program/concentration/certificate

    B. What is the need or demand for this course? (Indicate if this course is part of a required sequence in the major.) What other programs would this course service?

    This course is part of the core coursework for the proposed Master’s Degree in Athletic Training. The profession of Athletic Training is following other allied health professions and heading toward the entry point being at the graduate level. This is a proactive step in that direction, and will put USF at the forefront of Athletic Training education. There will be significant demand for the program, in that as of this point, there is no avenue for students that have obtained a bachelor’s degree in another discipline to challenge the National Board of Certification exam for Athletic Training. Presently, there is only one other institution in Florida (FIU) with an entry -level graduate Athletic Training Program.

    C. Has this course been offered as Selected Topics/Experimental Topics course? If yes, how many times?

    No

    D. What qualifications for training and/or experience are necessary to teach this course? (List minimum qualifications for the instructor.)

    Certified Athletic Trainer, MD, PhD, or equivalent.


  4. Other Course Information

    C. Major Topics

    Gross anatomy of the spine, extremities, back, thorax, abdomen, pelvis, and perineum.

    D. Textbooks

    Required:

    Drake et al. (2009) Gray’s Anatomy for Students (2nd edition)

    Recommended:

    Netter FH (2010) Atlas of Human Anatomy (5th edition).

    E. Course Readings, Online Resources, and Other Purchases

    None

    F. Student Expectations/Requirements and Grading Policy

    Exams (3 practical exams) 80%

    Class Participation, Assignments, Quizzes 15%

    Professionalism 5%

    G. Assignments, Exams and Tests

    Exams

    This class will have 3 practical exams. Each exam will assess the various components of the class covered throughout the module. The 3 laboratory tests will involve identification of anatomical landmarks in the cadaver lab and responses to various follow-up questions. These exams will all be timed.

    Quizzes, Assignments and Class Participation

    Students are required to participate in all lab activities. Students will be expected to come to class prepared. This course will utilize self-directed and team learning techniques for portions of the class. There will be resources available for you to learn at your dissecting station, but you will need to use them and be fully engaged in order to succeed. The amount you learn in this class will be directly proportional to your effort in preparing for lab and learning in the lab.

    H. Attendance Policy

    Course Attendance at First Class Meeting – Policy for Graduate Students: For structured courses, 6000 and above, the College/Campus Dean will set the first-day class attendance requirement. Check with the College for specific information. This policy is not applicable to courses in the following categories: Educational Outreach, Open University (TV), FEEDS Program, Community Experiential Learning (CEL), Cooperative Education Training, and courses that do not have regularly scheduled meeting days/times (such as, directed reading/research or study, individual research, thesis, dissertation, internship, practica, etc.). Students are responsible for dropping undesired courses in these categories by the 5th day of classes to avoid fee liability and academic penalty. (See USF Regulation – Registration - 4.0101,

    http://usfweb2.usf.edu/usfgc/ogc%20web/currentreg.htm)

    Attendance Policy for the Observance of Religious Days by Students: In accordance with Sections 1006.53 and 1001.74(10)(g) Florida Statutes and Board of Governors Regulation 6C-6.0115, the University of South Florida (University/USF) has established the following policy regarding religious observances: (http://usfweb2.usf.edu/usfgc/gc_pp/acadaf/gc10-045.htm)

    In the event of an emergency, it may be necessary for USF to suspend normal operations. During this time, USF may opt to continue delivery of instruction through methods that include but are not limited to: Blackboard, Elluminate, Skype, and email messaging and/or an alternate schedule. It’s the responsibility of the student to monitor Blackboard site for each class for course specific communication, and the main USF, College, and department websites, emails, and MoBull messages for important general information.

    I. Policy on Make-up Work

    Make up of missed work will be permitted, but points will be taken off for turning in work after the due date. No work will be accepted two weeks past its original due date and all course work must be turned in by the last day of class to receive credit.

    Academic Dishonesty:

    (USF POLICY)

    Each individual is expected to earn his/her degree on the basis of personal effort. Any form of cheating on examinations or plagiarism on assigned papers constitutes unacceptable deceit and dishonesty. Plagiarism is defined as “literary theft” and consists of the unattributed quotation of the exact words of a published text, or the unattributed borrowing of original ideas by paraphrase from a published text. On written papers for which the student employs information gathered from books, articles, or oral sources, each direct quotation, as well as ideas and facts that are not generally know to the public at large must be attributed to its author by means of the appropriate citation procedure. Citations may be made in footnotes or within the body of the text. Plagiarism also consists of passing off as one's own, segments or the total of another person's work. Punishment for academic dishonesty will depend on the seriousness of the offense and may include receipt of an “F” with a numerical value of zero on the item submitted, and the “F” shall be used to determine the final course grade. It is the option of the instructor to assign the student a grade of F or FF (the latter indicating dishonesty) in the course.

    Detection of Plagiarism:

    The University of South Florida has an account with an automated plagiarism detection service, which allows instructors to submit student assignments to be checked for plagiarism. I reserve the right to 1) request that assignments be submitted to me as electronic files and 2) electronically submit assignments to Turnitin.com. Assignments are compared automatically with a huge database of journal articles, web articles, and previously submitted papers. The instructor receives a report showing exactly how a student's paper was plagiarized.
