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 influence everyday work. (How much do you remember from your high school or college days?) An international survey of chiropractors and anatomists found that chiropractors felt that a higher level of anatomy teaching during chiropractic school was advantageous for clinical practice, permitting better understanding, application, and analysis of anatomical information to justify a clinical decision in their daily clinical practice. (1) An Australian report of chiropractors compared their knowledge of anatomy to that of chiropractic students. The chiropractic practitioners reported that they knew their anatomy and proved it in a test showing their knowledge. This was contrasted to the equivalent in their chiropractic student counterparts. The chiropractors demonstrated that they kept their knowledge of anatomy - and knew they did! – contradicting the hypothesis that practicing chiropractors may not retain it after school. Knowledge of anatomy is utilized daily in chiropractic practice, and chiropractors know their anatomy. (2) Your Plainville chiropractor does! Just ask to find out more.
