LEARNING ANATOMY IN SCHOOL

When we were in school, we were all guilty of learning just to pass an exam. Going to professional school, such learning is more vital than ever since it will impact everyday work. (How much do you remember from your school days?) An international survey of chiropractors and anatomists described that chiropractors thought that a higher level of anatomy teaching during chiropractic education was beneficial for clinical practice, permitting better understanding, application, and analysis of anatomical material to support a clinical decision in their daily clinical practice. (1) An Australian study of chiropractors compared their knowledge of anatomy to that of chiropractic students. The chiropractic practitioners rated their knowledge of anatomy and demonstrated it by taking a test of their knowledge. This was compared to the equivalent in their chiropractic student counterparts. The chiropractors demonstrated that they kept their knowledge of anatomy - and knew they did! – breaking the hypothesis that practicing chiropractors may not keep it after school. Knowledge of anatomy is utilized every day in chiropractic practice, and chiropractors know their anatomy. (2) Your Manahawkin chiropractor does! Just ask to find out more.
