Live Online Lecture Series
September 14 - December 17, 2020
The Dimon Institute is launching its first ever virtual Musculoskeletal Anatomy Course this fall. It will be open to all interested students, teachers, and trainees.
Dr. Ted Dimon will present a series of 26 live online lectures, 60 minutes each, from September 14, 2020 through December 17, 2020. The live class will meet Mondays and Wednesdays 12:00-1:00PM ET.
An additional optional series of 22 laboratory classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12:00-1:00PM ET will supplement the lecture series by exploring the course material experientially.
Students will also be granted access to recordings of all lectures and labs.
The curriculum is one that Dr. Ted Dimon has developed over many years and is based on three of his books: The Body in Motion, Anatomy of the Moving Body, and Anatomy of the Voice.
Basic musculoskeletal anatomy is presented as a way of introducing students to traditional anatomy—the location of particular bones, muscles and related structures. Musculoskeletal anatomy includes: bones; origins and attachments of muscles and related actions; joints, ligaments, and actions at joints; discussion of major functional structures such as the pelvis, shoulder girdle, ankle, and hand; terminology and etymology of anatomical terms; major landmarks and human topography; and structures relating to breathing and vocalization. In this course, anatomy is also presented from a functional perspective—that is, how we are designed to move and function. The course covers basic comparative anatomy of the human upright design, major anatomical systems such as the extensors, flexors, spine, shoulder girdle and upper limb, pelvic girdle and lower limb, the spiral musculature, and breathing and voice.
