Get it on your resume: Anatomy and Physiology

Are you interested in teaching? In teaching at a small college? Then I must encourage you to find some way to get experience with Anatomy and Physiology (A&P).

Universities and Colleges attract many students who are (or want to be) pre-med. All of these students have to take A&P, and very rarely do A&P students stay on track to become professors at these types of institutions. I've heard it from many different sources, schools all need instructors and professors for A&P. Having some experience or confidence in teaching A&P (by TAing it or taking the course) would be a major gold star on your application which you should highlight.

And if you are in a position to be teaching A&P, let me direct you towards the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS). They offer resources for teachers and graduate credit for students who want to learn about teaching A&P. Are there other ways to get A&P credentials, if you, like most of us, are not an A&P researcher?
