I had an amazing experience taking the July 14-18, 2011 Functional Anatomy for Movement and Injuries (FAMI) course at Mt Sinai Medical Center in NYC. The course consisted of lectures and gross anatomy labs, plus sessions with a radiologist and physical therapist.

MARION DIAMOND’S Anatomy Lectures
I have become a huge fan of the youtube Human Anatomy lectures by Professor Marian Diamond of UC Berkeley. I purchased a 99% like-new copy (for just over $40 on amazon) of the Human Anatomy & Physiology text, sixth edition, and have been reading the chapters in concert with viewing the videos. Here are my posts about Human Anatomy, which seemed the perfect “next step” in my exploration of the brain. By the way, I am enthralled by Dr. Diamond! [UPDATE – Marian Diamond, an amazing and inspirational scientist, died in July 2017 at the age of 90. UC Berkeley, where she spent the bulk of her career, wrote this about her life.]
