Cadavers, anyone?

People are DYING to get into this course!

Some of you already know that I'm the Director of HAPS Institute (HAPS-I), the professional continuing education program of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS). This program offers graduate biology courses in flexible formats to A&P professors just like you!

I'll explain more about HAPS-I in later posts, but right now I have urgent news:

We're offering a repeat of one of our most popular courses SOON!

(3 credits, Univ of Washington)

This is for anyone who is using cadavers, wants to use cadavers, or is just curious about using cadavers in their undergraduate program. You'll go back with a lot of great photos of organs, etc, that you can use in your own courses plus plenty of great tips on how to implement cadaver use at your institution. I sat in on last spring's course and it was GREAT. I picked up a lot just by OSMOSIS. Think how much more you'll get by actually PARTICIPATING!

The course begins September 8 with online readings and discussions.

The workshop will be at the cadaver lab at Grand Rapids Community College (downtown Grand Rapids MI) on Sep 26-27-28. We'll have a session Friday evening in the hotel following an optional pay- your-own welcome dinner. Then all day Saturday on campus in various sessions in and out of the lab. Saturday optional pay-your-own dinner in Grand Rapids. Then a Sunday morning wrap-up session on campus until 11am.

Then you'll discuss things and work on your learning object through the end of November.

Accommodations at $89 per night are available at the nearby Days Inn Hotel (a few easy blocks from campus). Call (616) 235-7611 and ask for the HAPS Institute rate.

The enrollment form, syllabus, faculty, course details, and so on, are posted at

THIS COURSE FILLED FAST last time and HAD A LONG WAIT LIST so if you are interested, you have to ENROLL NOW to ensure a spot. Last time there was crying and wailing when we had to shut the door . . . don't let that happen to you. Those on the waiting list from last year are mostly already in the course (we're almost half full already!).

I told ya it would fill FAST!

As of today, we have completely filled this course.

If you are still interested, please enroll anyway . . . then you'll be put on a wait list and be "ready to roll" if someone drops out at the last minute.

And stay tuned for MORE HAPS-I courses!
