    Anatomy & Physiology Student Projects

    Overview

    These projects are intended to enhance the anatomy and physiology course content. I've designed these so that the group project is coimpatible with a traditional A&P 1 course, and the individual project is compatible with a traditional A&P 2 course. However, both of these projects can work with either course, albeit with minor modifications.

    Group Project

    This project is intended to further your professional development, and to simulate modern presentations you may have to give during your future career. At the end of this project, you will have:

    • Collaborated with peers in a structured, professional context.
    • Presented scientific information to peers.
    • Demonstrated knowledge in a meaningful way.

    This project requires your group to present to your peers a disease or disorder (DD) of your choice. Well, kind of…you will choose one of the AP1-related DDs from the list below, and follow the proceeding directions. The DDs are organized alphabetically for the sake of simplicity. Some involve isolated organ systems, but many actually involve multiple systems.

    • Achondroplasia
    • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
    • Ehlers-Danlos syndrome
    • Hyperhidrosis
    • Ichthyosis
    • Lactic acidosis
    • Macular degeneration
    • Marfan syndrome
    • Multiple sclerosis
    • Muscular dystrophy
    • Osteogenesis imperfecta
    • Parkinson’s disease
    • Rickets
    • Spina bifida
    • Vitiligo

    Individual Project

    This project is intended to further your professional development, and to simulate modern presentations you may have to give during your future career. At the end of this project, you will have:

    • Written a structured paper on a disease or disorder
    • Created a meaningful case study.
    • Presented scientific information to peers.
    • Demonstrated knowledge in a meaningful way.

    This project requires you to write a short paper on a disease or disorder (DD) of your choice. You will also create and present a related case study that your classmates will complete during the presentation.
