This course is the equivalent of Applied Anatomy (IB 131A), previously offered through the Integrative Biology department. Marian Diamond, former UC Berkeley Professor of Anatomy, first created this course to acquaint students with anatomy applications in various health fields, through seminars given by successful alumni. This course will continue that tradition and will feature Berkeley graduates, who are now successful medical health professionals, in a series of 1-hour weekly seminars. Guest speakers will provide insight into their daily professional lives, their academic and personal paths that led them to their careers, and their perspectives on the medical field. This course is designed to give students a glimpse of the broad applications of anatomy, outside of the classroom.
There will be weekly readings, posted on bCourses prior to the relevant lecturer’s presentation. These readings provide general information on the their field and specialty. Students are required to read the articles before class and come prepared to engage with the speakers.
Grading & Attendance:
The class is graded on a P/NP basis and students will receive 1 unit upon completion. Students must complete ALL assignments and attend ALL lectures to pass the course. There are no essays or exams.
There will be 12 assignments over the course of the semester, assigned weekly following each guest speaker’s presentation. Each assignment is comprised of two parts: a two-sentence, thoughtful reflection on something the speaker said that was interesting or meaningful to you; and a URL to a career-development resource, volunteer opportunity, or similar resource for peers to view.
